Rabbits are generally small mammals recognized throughout the world as primarily a prey animal, though they can also be domesticated in the form of livestock or pet. Even in modern times, these mammals serve as food, clothing, companions, and artistic inspiration. Male rabbits are called bucks and females, does. The term “kit” or “kitten” refers to their young, which are part of a litter. Colloquially, people refer to them as “bunnies’. Rabbits range in size, and most breeds are typically are about the size of a cat, though some domestic breeds can grow to be as big as a small child.
Their coats range anywhere from grey to black, and brown to red. Most species, especially those in the wild, have slender, upright ears, which they utilize to detect and avoid predators. Some domesticated breeds have floppy ears. All species of rabbits have short, fluffy tails; their method of locomotion is hopping, as their back legs are long and powerful.
Rabbits are known for having insatiable reproductive habits, and for a valid reason. Adults tend to breed three to four times each year. This is because, according to research, only 15 percent of kits make it to their first birthdays.
Typically, rabbit damage, like moles and voles, can be highly detrimental to yards. Rabbits are herbivores, so they enjoy feasting on the tender growth of new plants, gnaw others down to the root; the concentration of their urine can also create brown spots in lawns. If you notice spots in your yard that appear short and are beginning to brown, it’s probably rabbit damage.
