round here in suffolk i often see what it is your discribing, its nothing more than a leverit that hasnt got its black tip colour yet. i see them almost daily this time of the year. there about the size of a young rabbit but alot more gangly in there movement as well as longer legged. so no you havnt seen a new breed of running machine and no they cant cross breed. :victory:

Yes ,though it is "Rare",if they do it too often it becomes a "Habit".Seriously no they can't two distinct species. Inan.

I was told a few year's ago that if a Rabbit came across a young leveret it would kill it, don't know how much truth is in that??
