Rabbit

Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world. There are eight different genera in the family classified as rabbits, including the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), cottontail rabbits (genus Sylvilagus; 13 species), and the Amami rabbit (Pentalagus furnessi, an endangered species on Amami Ōshima, Japan). There are many other species of rabbit, and these, along with pikas and hares, make up the order Lagomorpha. The male is called a buck and the female is a doe; a young rabbit is a kitten or kit.

This mother rabbit fights a black rat snake by attempting to disembowel it after it had killed two of her babies and started going after a third. What a brave mother! More info here: www.iflscience.com

Baby Bunny Bunch

My adult rabbits had a secret litter and the bunnies were extremely adorable. At three weeks old they were the same size as a miniature baby bottle.

There was something heartbreaking about leaving my bunny in a cage all the time. We had to move her outside because she tried to eat all the wiring which is really dangerous for her. She also ate our molding. When she was in her outdoors cage we would let her out so she could nibble on the greenery ( we have an acre or land) she seemed really happy, but I guess she was too happy because one day she ran away. Having your bunny in the open is good, they need the exercise and a way to keep their claws short, but make sure that you keep them close enough to their cage so you can get them back in. Also keep an eye on them so nothing tries to harm your bunny.
