Rabbits were long-eared, furry animals, also called 'coneys'. On 7 March T.A. 3019 in northern Ithilien, Samwise Gamgee asked Gollum to bring him some food. Gollum brought him two small rabbits which Sam proceeded to cook, to Gollum's intense displeasure.
In a linguistic manuscript dating from the 1930s, appears the Qenya glosses tundu ("hole") and lopotundu ("rabbithole"); lopo (attested only in this compound) would thus be a Qenya word for "rabbit".
