  • Rabbit, any of 29 species of long-eared mammals belonging to the family Leporidae,
  • They are found in a variety of habitats including meadows, woods, forests, grasslands, deserts, and wetlands
  • In addition to their prominent ears, which can measure up to 6 cm (more than 2 inches) long, rabbits have long, powerful hind legs and a short tail.
  • The fur is generally long and soft, and its colour ranges through shades of brown, white, black or even grey.
  • They have nearly 360° panoramic vision with just a small blind spot on the bridge of the nose, allowing them to detect predators from all directions
  • During territorial disputes, rabbits will sometimes “box,” using their front limbs.
  • They graze on leafy vegetation, soft weeds, forbs and grasses
  • Rabbits are generally nocturnal, and they also are relatively silent. Other than loud screams when frightened or caught by a predator, the only auditory signal known for most species is a loud foot thump made to indicate alarm or aggression
  • European rabbits have been domesticated since the Middle Ages. Captive rabbits are kept for pets, but also for food, fur, wool, and research.
