Whether you view Cottontail Rabbits as an adorable wild creature or a nuisance to your landscaping, everyone can agree that there are thousands of them in San Diego.

Mother rabbits do not stay in the nest but instead run into the burrow and stand over the babies while they feed on their backs just twice a day. If you find a nest of baby rabbits, leave them alone as mom is probably near-by but you will never see her!
