The Tres Marias cottontail or Tres Marias rabbit (Sylvilagus graysoni) is a species of mammal in the family Leporidae.[1] It is endemic to the Tres Marias Islands, part of the Mexican state of Nayarit.[2] The Rabbit is abundantly found in both the Madre and Magdalena islands but only has some occurrences in the Cleofa island.[3] Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is threatened by habitat loss. The rabbit only has one predatory mammal , (the Tres Marias racoon) and only two Birds that prey on them, the Red - tailed Hawk and the Caracaras. [4]
