About

Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

Fun Facts
  • 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.
