Handling A Rabbit

Did you know

Rabbits have complex digestive systems. Food is passed through their gut and this is how caecotrophs are produced, rabbits then eat the caecotrophs and the food is re-ingested.

Handling a Rabbit

When you bring your rabbit it needs time to get used to its surroundings, sounds and smells. Be mindful they are a prey animal and are naturally cautious and very alert.

You need to gain the rabbit’s trust, so avoid picking them up when they try to hide, sit down on the floor and spend time with them on their level until they get used to your smells, movements and sounds. And remember children need to be supervised to ensure they understand how to handle rabbits properly.
