Very scared rabbits will put their ears straight back and flat to their bodies, trying to make themselves as small as possible.

When the rabbit is too hot, the blood vessels in the ears will expand to give off heat and help cool the bun down.

Some rabbits like to cuddle next to you or sleep in your lap as long as they trust you and don’t feel confined.

Rabbits eat hay, grass, greens, and other fibrous foods as a standard diet.

Access to regular food, water, shelter, veterinary care, exercise, and entertainment can keep them healthy for a long time.

Should danger appear, the rabbit will bolt to safety on the path that they’ve chosen and remembered in order to make a quick escape.

If you’re considering getting a rabbit or you already have one and don’t have much time to spend interacting with them, another bunny friend is a good idea.

If they don’t get enough exercise, especially when they’re young, their bones won’t develop properly and can easily break when the rabbits are older.

People buy these small buns, thinking that they’ll make great pets, without always knowing the amount of work required to keep these animals healthy and happy.

The animals are often then let loose outside, which leads to their deaths because they are domesticated pets and don’t know how to survive in the wild.

Rescues exist solely for rabbits, so you can find the perfect bun for you and save a life at the same time.

Provide plenty of toys and wooden chew blocks and sticks for them, and they’ll leave your things alone.

Brushing them daily will help keep the shedding down and limit the amount of fur that rabbits swallow when they groom themselves.

Most pet buns eat a diet of pellets, hay, and leafy green vegetables.

Remember to add plenty of chew toys to their enclosure for your rabbit to keep their teeth short and healthy.

Fresh, clean water should be available at all times, and rabbits drink a great deal of it, probably due to all that chewing!
