help wanted with rabbit identification Dubois, Wyoming

    I’d say either Desert or Mountain but not sure which. Has marks of both but b/c of elevation I’d say Mountain.

    Looks like mountain cottontail to me. Grayish color suggests Pygmy Rabbit, but I think the ear and the nose are too long, and none of the PRs I’ve seen had such a pale eye ring. Also, PR is limited to S Wyoming. Desert Cottontails sometimes look very similar at high elevations, but nomally have longer ears with black tips.
