Incisor Malocclusion in a Specimen of Sylvilagus floridanus (Mammalia: Lagomorpha) from North Carolina

Record #:
Malocclusion, with the consequential overgrowth of incisors or molars has been reported in rodents and, to a much lesser extent, in hares and rabbits (lagomorphs). A cottontail rabbit with incisor malocclusion was found and examined in Wayne County, North Carolina. No clear reason for the dental condition was found, and this was only the second report of the phenomenon in the wild.
