Rabbits were small, fat lagomorpha living everywhere in Middle-earth, called Conies by the Hobbits.
Appearances in filmsEdit
In Peter Jackson's movie The Two Towers, a brace of rabbits were caught by Gollum just before a force of Haradrim walked through the land with an Oliphaunt, but then are then cooked by Sam in a stew, which angered Gollum.
In the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Radagast the Brown's sled is pulled by rabbits from Rhosgobel, called by him Rhosgobel Rabbits, which were fast enough to outrun Wolves from Gundabad.
