Hares are mammals that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands.


The hares featured in The Lion Guard are scrub hares and red rock hares. Scrub hares are primarily gray, while red rock hares have reddish-brown fur. They both have black ear tips. and tails that are black on top and white on the underside. They also have sharp incisors.

A hare is peacefully grazing when she hears the voice of Goigoi threatening to eat her. She runs to the Lion Guard to get help.
