With proper care, pet rabbits can live for 8 to 12 years or even longer, depending on the breed.
Rabbits are not very vocal, but they communicate through body language, thumping their hind legs when alarmed, and purring when content.
Rabbits are known for their rapid breeding. A single pair of rabbits and their offspring can produce thousands of descendants in just a few years.
Rabbits are skilled jumpers and can leap up to 3 feet in the air. This ability is crucial for avoiding predators in the wild.
Rabbits have continuously growing teeth that can grow up to 5 inches per year. Chewing on hay and other fibrous foods helps wear down their teeth.
Rabbits have a unique digestive system. They produce soft, nutrient-rich fecal pellets called cecotropes, which they consume directly from their anus to gain essential nutrients.
Pet rabbits are crepuscular, meaning they are most active during dawn and dusk, which can make them a good fit for people with busy daytime schedules.
