Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.
Rabbits have an excellent sense of smell, hearing and vision. They 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.
Rabbits have extremely strong hind limbs which allow them to leap great distances. They can jump up to one meter high and three meters long.
When rabbits ‘binky’, this is an expression of joy. They will run, jump into the air, twist their body and flick their feet.
Lowest risk; does not qualify for a higher risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
