Rabbit Maze

Rabbits are adapted to a wide variety of habitats. They are loved as pets and for their soft fur that can be spun into yarn. Rabbits can run at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. In the wild, rabbits seldom live more than a year or two at most. Domesticated rabbits may live a dozen years or slightly more. Rabbits like to stand on their hind legs to look around.

  • Pet rabbits routinely live to be about 10 years old. They are herbivores.

  • Rabbits in captivity may have a litter every 6 weeks or so; and each litter may have 10 or more babies. In the wild, they can reproduce even more often.

  • A male rabbit is called a buck; a female is a doe.

  • Rabbit babies are called kits; they are born hairless and with their eyes closed.

  • Rabbits’ ears are very large in proportion to their face.

  • Cottontail rabbits are the commonest wild rabbit in the United States. They are similar in size and shape to the domesticated rabbits that originated in Europe.

  • Cottontail rabbits weigh about 2 or 3 pounds and can be up to 16 inches long.

  • There are about 50 domesticated rabbit breeds.

  • The largest of these are the Flemish Giant and Continental Giant breeds. The largest Continental Giant on record weighs about 55 pounds and is over three feet long.

  • Angora rabbits grow fur long and soft enough to be spun into yarn. Rabbits are shorn four times a year, yielding a total of about 12 ounces of fiber. Angora is a super luxury wool!

  • Rabbits are crepuscular, which means they are most active at dawn and at dusk.

  • Rabbits cannot throw up.
