Free rabbits are those who live in wild nature, the ones that don’t live around humans. Hares and wild rabbits are two considered as this kind of rabbits.
Although hares and rabbits are different animals, both of terms are used interchangeably. For example people call domesticated rabbits originated from Belgium known as Belgian hare, in fact they are rabbit. While people call hare in America as Jack rabbit, but they are hare.
Main differences between hares and wild rabbits are… hares live in simple nest on the ground made from grasses, and their babies are born with opened eyes and fully furred already.
While wild rabbits dig burrow (or warren) under the ground, and their babies are born blind and furless.
