Excerpt: ... BRASILIAN HARE. Lepra Brasilicnsis. L. auritus, collari albo, Cauda nulla. Lin. St/st. Nat. Gmel.p. 164. Pall. Glir.p. 30. Tailless brown Hare, white beneath, with a white collar round the neck. Cuniculus Brasilicnsis Tapeti. Marcgr. brat. 223. Brasilian Hare. Pennant Quadr. 2. p. 107. The Brasilian Hare is nearly of the same size as the common hare: it is also similar in colour, but of a somewhat darker cast: the chin and under parts are white; the face reddish, and a white ring surrounds the neck; the ears are very large; the eyes black; and the tail is entirely wanting.
