cosmo Cosmo the rabbit advises me of these top 10 most interesting facts about rabbits he bets you didn’t know:

1. Rabbits are not rodents, they are lagomorphs.

2. The only place a rabbit sweats is through the pads on its feet.

3. Rabbits cannot vomit, even when shown this picture of Hillary Clinton (I know, I tried!)

4. Rabbit meat is all white meat, and is lower in fat, cholesterol, and calories than chicken, pork, and beef (sorry Cosmo!).

5. A group of rabbits is called a herd but if you see a bunch of them living together it’s called a “warren”.

6. Rabbits love to chew – probably a result of the fact their teeth never stop growing.

7. Rabbits are partially color blind.

8. Rabbits recognize their human companions using not only their vision, but also their voices, scents, and movements.

9. Rabbits can purr similar to a cat (and lightly grind their teeth as well) when they are feeling content.

10. A 4-lb. rabbit will drink as much water as a 20-lb. dog. A rabbit can go all day without eating, but it will die without water of any kind.

So there ya go, everything you ever wanted to learn about rabbits – and more! Of course, if you’d like to know more about rabbits, especially the fact that they’re not just for keeping outside in a cage all alone, the House Rabbit Society has much more.

Thanks, Cosmo – an extra piece of carrot for you tonight!

  1. Of course, one of their favorite books is
    “Watership Down”!

  2. Cosmo’s favorite (so he tells me) is John Updike’s “Rabbit At Rest”. No wonder – he’s a lazy bugger.
