There are two living families of lagomorphs: the Leporidae (hares and rabbits) and the Ochotonidae (pikas).Though these mammals can resemble rodents, they differ in that:
  • they have four incisors in the upper jaw (not two, as in the Rodentia)
  • they are almost strictly herbivorous (unlike rodents, many of which will eat both meat and vegetation)

However, they resemble rodents in that their teeth grow throughout their lives, thus necessitating constant chewing to keep them from growing too long.
