rabbits 101

  • Rabbits are intelligent social animals who live in large groups in the wild. They love to play and groom one another.
  • In the wild rabbits live in warrens of complex underground tunnels. Although they can live up to 12 years, the average is less than one year on fur and meat farms.
  • Rabbits should be kept in pairs because companionship is the key to a rabbit’s happiness. Without a friend, loneliness and boredom ensue.
  • Rabbits, though quiet, communicate with different vocal sounds such as a low humming which shows affection.
  • Rabbits are gentle and timid. In the Chinese Zodiac, rabbits represent tenderness, sensitivity, compassion…
  • In the wild, rabbits are constantly occupied, from foraging to territorial maintenance and defence. Captive rabbits, however, lack stimulation, leading to health and behavioural abnormalities.
