Some Facts about Rabbit
Rabbits are fluffy small mammals known for their short tails, whiskers and unique long ears. There are about eight genera in the family classified as rabbits. More so, there are up to 30 different species of rabbit in the entire Peabody wildlife control area. Though, different rabbit’s species are found in different environment yet, they still have lots of things in common. It is true that some species of rabbits can be as small as cat; there are also some species that can grow as huge as a small child. The small rabbit species are as small as 8”in length and their weigh about one pound. But, the larger rabbit’s full growth is about 20” that is 50 cm and weigh above 4 pounds.
Rabbits are popular for their ravenous reproductive pattern as they breed more than 4 times yearly. The reason for their frequent reproduction can easily be attributed to the fat the fact that they are prey animal and only 15% of their babies normally live to see their first birthday. The female normally put to birth their babies alive just like other mammals and they normally born 3 to 8 babies which are called kittens. The kittens normally have ability to cater for themselves 4 to 5 weeks of their birth.
Rabbits are known to begin their life after birth as helpless babies, naked and blind. Within 4-5 weeks they already have hairs with good vision sufficient to cater for their survival. Also, within the space of 2 to 3 months of their births they are already grown and become matured sexually so as to breed for their babies to start up the lifecycle again. The average lifespan of rabbits can be up to 12 years while in the wild and can be more than that while in bondage.
It is true that rabbit originate from Africa and Europe they make different environments their Peabody wildlife removal home. For domestic rabbit to survive and reproduce effectively, the need well regulated environment as that can help to be protected against hypothermia or exhaustion. However, wild rabbits do not have this problem and can build their home in different environments including meadows, deserts, grasslands, wetlands, tundra and even in places with extreme temperature.
Really, rabbits are social creatures and often live in large group which is known as colonies. They are busiest at dawn and dusk during the day. This is the time they normally go out to look for food. More so, the low light associated with dawn and dusk usually makes it easy for rabbits to hide away from their predators.
