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.
