Rabbit

Must Try

Sebastian Acosta
Sebastian grew up on a goat farm in rural Wisconsin. He learned a lot about different animals as a youngster. While he is no longer in charge of feeding the kids, he still helps maintain the family farm on the weekends. In his free time, he travels the world and finds every opportunity to escape in nature.

Rabbits and bunnies are small mammals belonging to the family Leporidae. There are 29 species of rabbits found in the world.

European rabbits, which have been introduced to every continent except Antarctica, are familiar worldwide as prey animals and as pets. The rabbit affects ecology and cultures worldwide, being food, clothing, a companion, and a source of artistic inspiration.

Like deer, male rabbits are referred to as bucks, and female rabbits are called does. Bunny can also be used to describe a young rabbit, though it’s used informally (especially by kids) to describe rabbits in general.

Hares are slightly different from rabbits. While hares are precocial, born relatively mature, mobile, with hair and good vision, rabbits are altricial, born blind and hairless, and require closer care.

Domesticated rabbits have been around for a long time. Since the Middle Ages, European rabbits have been kept as livestock, bred for their meat and fur.

Herbivores, rabbits eat grass and leaves. Rabbits are crepuscular, meaning they are most active during dawn and dusk. The rabbit can even sleep with its eyes open often if it senses danger so that it can be woken up by sudden movements.
