Abstract

The specimen of rabbit exhibited was killed a few miles south of Ames, in the early part of the past winter (1889-1890), and sent to me through Mr. H. P. McLain, of Ames. It is remarkable in having two extensive patches of very long hair, one running along each side of the back from the ears to the hips, so long as to droop down the sides to the lower line of the body, and also similar long hairs, in tufts, in front of the ears and on the upper part of each leg, The color is about like that of a poodle dog, and the extreme length of the hair gives the whole animal a certain resemblance to that variety of dog. The mounted specimen is preserved in the museum of the Iowa Agricultural College.
