Who can resist the cute and cuddly widdle bunny wabbit! Rabbits are mammals. A female bunny can have up to 12-13 baby bunnies at one time! A group of rabbits is called a colony, or a nest. A baby bunny is called a ‘kitten’ or ‘kit’ for short. Baby bunnies are born with no hair. The flemish giant rabbit can reach over 4 feet long. The lifespan of a bunny in the wild is about 3 years.
When a rabbit is happy, it will hop around excitedly, which is known as “binky”. Rabbits are “crepuscular”, meaning they are most active in the early morning and evening. All bunnies are herbivores, though they do eat their own poo! Their nails and teeth never stop growing. Bunnies make great pets, but remember, it should be a lifelong choice. Many bunnies are turned out into the wild or taken to shelters shortly after Easter. Many of these bunnies never make it to their first birthday. So, be a honey, and love your bunny!
