1. Rabbits are escape animals

Rabbits are always on the lookout. This is particularly evident from the fact that they are very cautious and behave more fearfully. For example, when rabbits are fooled by a human, they often become numb or try to free themselves by jumping uncontrollably.

2. Rabbits move as much as cats

Rabbits have the same urge to move around like cats. They need a lot of space and love to exercise in the fresh air.

3. Rabbits digest twice

Rabbits eat a special part of their excrement called appendix feces. This enables them to digest the food that is difficult to digest, such as crude fiber.

4. Rabbits are group animals

In the wild, rabbits live in large groups and have distinctive social behavior. Like us humans, they need conspecifics to be happy.

5. Rabbits defend their territory

Rabbits are very territorial and even defend their territory in a fighting manner if necessary.

6. Rabbit teeth will grow for a lifetime

Rabbit teeth never stop growing. The animals, therefore, wear off their teeth, for example by gnawing on branches. If they do not do this, the teeth may be misaligned.

7. Rabbits warn their conspecifics with knocking noises

Rabbits signal anger, discomfort, excitement, or fear by quickly so-called drumming with their hind legs on the ground. This also warns group members.

The knock is usually followed by a quick sprint at high speed in order to outrun the possible enemy and hide in a shelter.
