The Afrikaans names for these are quite prescriptive : Scrub hare -- Kolhaas - a " kol " is a " white spot " situated in the middle of the forehead .
Cape hare --- is called a " vlakhaas " - prefers open plains savannahs , typical of karoo landscape and avoids brush and scrub , hence the reference to " vlak or vlaktes " -- plains .
