Full Answer

The very large-caliber air rifles (0.25 and 0.357) can kill coyotes and even large animals, such as deer, if the hunter can get close enough to the prey before taking the shot. The accurate range of an airgun depends on the power with which it fires as well as the caliber. An 800 fps 0.25 airgun is accurate at 20 yards, but an 800 fps 0.22 airgun can be accurate as far out as 30 or 35 yards.

    What is the niche of a rabbit?

    A:

    Rabbits fill the ecological niche of small grazing prey animals with high reproductive rates. They are primary consumers, animals that are at the bottom of the food chain and eat only plants. Their high rate of reproduction means they can support many predators in their local environment. Their grazing and digging habits control the growth of local plants; different species may be more or less specialized for their particular niche.
