Rabbits are illegal to own as pets in Queensland.
Male rabbits are called "bucks", females are "does"
(and are larger) and youngsters are "kittens"
A group is known as a "herd" and can live
in a "warren"
Rabbits are most active at dawn and twilight and can have a lifespan
beyond 10 years
Rabbits should be desexed especially if you are keeping pairs as they
will either breed or fight. Non-desexed rabbits will also mark your
house with droppings.
Rabbits are vegetarians and have a great ability to digest fibre.
To do this they digest food twice, eating their own droppings - a
vice in other animals but normal in the rabbit. Rabbit diet consists
of vegetables, hay and pellets, with a good quality oat hay being
of primary importance to keeping your bunny healthy.
