Patagonian Mara

Exotic Animals
About This Project

Also known as the Hare or Dillaby, the Mara is somewhat like a rabbit, found in the open plains of Argentina.

Mara are monogamous but will share burrows with up to 30 other pairs. Each pair will have 1-2 young after a gestation period of 100 days.

Despite their size, they are hunted by cats, foxes and birds of prey, and have acute eyesight and hearing as well as the ability to run at up to 18 miles per hour. Maras will live for 7-10 years.
