A rabbit can leap over fences as small as two feet. A 24-inch fence is no match for a jackrabbit, but a two-foot fence will keep the average rabbit out. But what if a rabbit can run farther? If a rabbit could run farther, it would also have to run out the woods. How far can a rabbit run in the woods?
It’s impossible for a rabbit to travel indefinitely, but it can scurry as far as it can find food. A dog can smell a tree from up to 15 meters away. A horse can walk up to 40 miles per hour, but it will need breaks. A walking horse, meanwhile, can walk eight hours without a break.
