Highlight rabbit facts, bunny facts
Bunnies, rabbits are without a double one of the most awesome creatures in the world. So without further ado, here is list of interesting facts about bunnies, rabbits that will interest you.
1. Rabbits or bunnies?
Rabbits and bunnies are the same animal – there’s no difference in breed or species, just the word we prefer.
2. Sleep with opening eyes
Rabbits often sleep with their eyes open to alarm them of enemies.
3. Teeth never stop growing
A rabbit’s teeth never stop growing! Many people believe they need to chew to keep their teeth short. While they do enjoy chewing, it’s the normal wear from where their top and bottom teeth meet that keeps a rabbit’s teeth short.
4. Excellent sense of smell, hearing and vision
Rabbits have nearly 360° panoramic vision, allowing them to detect predators from all directions. They can see everything behind them and only have a small blind-spot in front of their nose.
5. Getting bored easily
Just like humans, rabbits become bored if their environments remain the same, so can benefit from variety and occasional change of scenery. However, too much change can have adverse effects. A wild rabbit’s survival depends on an intimate knowledge of its surroundings in order to escape from predators, so structural changes to the “warren” of a rabbit kept as a pet should be kept subtle, such as changing their toys and regularly providing new ones.
6. Baby hare and rabbit differences
Hares are born with their eyes open, hair covering their bodies, and they can run within a few minutes of birth. Rabbits, on the other hand, are born blind, naked, and remain in a fur-lined nest for the first days of their lives.
7. Four hours of exercise per day

8. Unique personality
Every rabbit is different. They can take a long time to get to know their own fact, and it’s hard to tell if they will get along with another animal companion—even another rabbit. Making sure two rabbits get along takes a lot of time and energy. It can be dangerous to put two of them together who don’t know each other yet, so keep that in mind if you plan on adopting more than one rabbit.
9. Particular about territory
When you adopt a rabbit, you quickly realize that they get grumpy if you intrude on their own place. They need lots of space and have specific spots where they like to eat, sleep, and use the “bathroom” (kind of like humans!). Sometimes, if you invade a bunny’s space, he or she will grunt at you so that you know to back off.
10. Eat their droppings
Bunnies need to digest some of their food twice. Healthy bunnies eat soft “cecotropes” (nutrient-packed droppings) that look like poop. The hard, round pellets you see are from the second round of digestion.
