Now I have learned something about the difference between hares and rabbits:
Newborn hares, called leverets, are fully developed at birth—furred with open eyes—while newborn rabbits, called kittens or kits, are born undeveloped, with closed eyes, no fur, and an inability to regulate their own temperature
Thanks, National Geographic!
