Quite fascinatingly, some species of these squirrels have black hair due to a faulty pigment gene present in their lineage.
Compared to eastern cottontails, swampy rabbits have darker fur with relatively smaller ears and a light brown colored ring around their eyes.
They are mostly known to live in deep forests but can also survive near wetlands or rocky terrains. The appearance of these creatures differs slightly from a typical cat.
These distressing critters live in trenches near water and consume a lot of vegetation, which is a significant matter of concern for humans.
