Into the rab­bit hole

Animal Scene - - CONTENTS - by Richelle Joyce Bri­ones

Do­mes­tic rab­bits (Latin name: Oryc­to­la­gus cu­nicu­lus), can be very re­ward­ing com­pan­ion an­i­mals. Most of the var­i­ous rab­bit breeds come in minute sizes and they can live eight to twelve years, while some man­age to sur­vive even longer. This makes them ideal as longterm furry friends to keep by our side.

Do not be de­ceived by their cute­ness and very shy de­meanor be­cause they are very so­cia­ble crea­tures and must not be left on their own. Rab­bits are bet­ter off in pairs or groups, un­less ad­vised in spe­cial cases by your vet­eri­nar­ian.
