The real Riverine Rabbit would not be found in nature, on forest floors, with plenty of compost, mulch and Plectranthus ciliatus as our Random Harvest Bunny was pictured in the nursery. It in fact has a very specific area that it occurs in – only along rivers in Nama and Succulent Karoo areas, in the Central and Small Karoo. In other parts of the country, you will find hares, which are related to the Riverine Rabbit.
Acacia siberiana var. woodii - The Paperbark Thorn has been called the quintessential African tree.
