Rabbit is a heraldic charge found in A Glossary of Terms Used in Heraldry by James Parker; Hare: the Hart (fr. Lièvre), as also the rabbit (fr. Lapin), always blazoned coney (and in one case, the leveret). Are not infrequent in coats of arms, but, so far as has been observed, there are no rules followed as to distinct drawing of these varieties.
