What kind of animal is a rabbit?

Rabbits are curious domestic animals who like playing and can be very affectionate pets as well. They are friendly herbivores loving grass, hay and vegetables; this food satisfies their everyday needs and help maintaining them healthy.

It is possible to keep rabbits in your houses but you have to pay attention to their specific requirements: one of the most important need no doubt is gnawing. This is a real physiological need they have to wear their teeth out and for this reason you have to supply them with specific chewing items like mineral cubes or wooden gnaws.  At the same time, it is important to provide some toys giving them new impulses and stimulate their continuous will for discoveries. For the wellbeing of rabbits, then, it is necessary to give them the possibility to take some exercise. You absolutely have to consider their need of protection and provide a shelter or a small house inside which your animals can take cover.
