Illustration Daily: Hare

Now for the other half of The Tortoise and the Hare, the hare. Hares, are in the same family as rabbits, but they are not the same genus. One unique characteristic of hares is that they have a kinetic (or jointed) skull, this is thought to help absorb the impact of their running and jumping. Hares can run at speed of about 40 miles per hour and leap up to 10 feet. That must have been a long nap to give the tortoise such a big head start.
