Bunnies for sale
Bunnies for sale,rabbits are small mammals with fluffy, short tails, whiskers and distinctive long ears. There are more than 30 species around the world, and while they live in many different environments, they have many things in common.
Rabbits and hares are in the same taxonomic family, Leporidae, but they are in different genera. There are 11 genera within the family, but the term “true hares” refers only to species in the genus Lepus; all others are rabbits.
The rabbit has long ears without black tips and long hind legs; its colouring is sandy and less reddish than brown hare. The rabbit is smaller than the hare and has a bobbing gait, rather than the loping gait that hares have.
Habitat of Bunnies for sale
While originally from Europe and Africa, rabbits are now found all over the world. They occupy most of the world’s land masses, except for southern South America, the West Indies, Madagascar, and most islands southeast of Asia, according to ADW.
Domestic rabbits need a regulated environment to protect against heat exhaustion or hypothermia. Wild rabbits don’t have this problem and make their homes in various temperature extremes. Wild rabbits can be found in woods, forests, meadows, grasslands, deserts, tundra and wetlands.
Rabbits create their own homes by tunneling into the ground. These tunnel systems are called warrens and include rooms for nesting and sleeping. They also have multiple entrances for quick escape. Warrens can be as deep as 9.84 feet (3 meters) underground, according to the Young People’s Trust for the Environment.
High-quality pelleted food formulated specifically for rabbits and offered in limited quantities (about ¼ cup per 5 lbs. of body weight per day)
Unlimited amounts of timothy hay (or other grass hay, such as orchard grass, oat or meadow hay)
Alfalfa hay contains higher amounts of calcium, fat and protein and is fine for young, growing rabbits, as well as for lactating and breeding rabbits, but should not be fed to adults except as an occasional treat; excess alfalfa fed to adults can lead to obesity and the development of bladder stones
Limited amounts of treats, vegetables and fruits. Small amounts of high-fiber fruits, such as apples and pears, may be given as treats occasionally, as well.
Leafy greens, herbs, carrot tops, and chopped vegetables (such as bell peppers, cucumber, squash, celery, broccoli and Brussels sprouts) are fine for rabbits. Do not allow rabbits to eat fruit seeds, pits or rhubarb
Clean, fresh water, changed daily, should be offered in a water bottle or a bowl, depending on your rabbit’s preference.
Your rabbit does not need a cage. However, an untrained rabbit probably should be kept in a home-base of some kind, like an exercise pen (x-pen), a large cage, or some other protected housing, while you’re not home to supervise and at night when you sleep. Check out San Diego House Rabbit Society’s terrific recommendations on x-pen living!
Bunnies are crepuscular, which means that generally they sleep during the day and during the night but are ready to play at dawn and at twilight. Be sure to let them out during the evening when you are home, and if possible, in the morning while you get ready for work.
The breeding season is mainly from January to August, producing one litter of 3-7 young per month. The doe constructs a nest inside a burrow from grass bedding and lines it with soft fur from her chest and belly. The young kittens are born blind, deaf and almost hairless. Their eyes open at 10 days, they begin to appear at the burrow entrance at 18 days and are weaned at 21-25 days. Bucks are able to mate at 4 months, does at 3.5 months. Young rabbits are preyed on by badgers, buzzards and weasels. Rabbits of all ages are taken by foxes, cats, stoats and polecats.
