Many of the 350 breeds of rabbits were created in 16th to 19th century Europe, and eventually brought to America. North and South America have their own unique species of wild rabbit relatives – the cottontails, jackrabbits and pikas. (In Aztec mythology, native cottontail or jackrabbit divinities called the Centzon Tōtōchtin (Nahuatl “four-hundred rabbits”) were gods of drunkenness and protectors of pulque.)
