Rabbits (aka bunnies) are the classic prey animal: basically,  wherever rabbits live, the natural predators in that area will hunt  and eat them -- i.e. anything that has sharp teeth, any carnivore,  anything bigger than them, etc.    Wild and domestic predators will eat pet rabbits if they...
Yes. She exits the burrow and refills the entrance hole with dirt  and hops off to spend the day munching. She will likely only visit  them 2 or 3 times in 24 hours to nurse them.
Not always but quite often. Like most mammals bearing live young,  giving birth is a painful process for the mother and often is  accompanied by at least some bleeding. Often long before the babies  are actually born, contractions and the movement of the babies  along the birth canal can push...
Shelter, grass and water
A mother rabbit's young are like any other, they should be weaned before you take them away from there mother, and that takes about eight weeks.

You want to take your rabbit to the vet and have him checked out. Rabbit illnesses can progress rapidly, so make an appointment as soon as you can.
Angora's originate from Ankara, Turkey. If you think I'm a geek don't cuz I had to do a non-chronological report on this!!(yawn!) x
This happened to me but it got better on its own but if you  would like to speed up recovery then you could ask your local pet  store for a medicine or some advice but if you need to and your  very worried then go to the vet  😊 
If the vet couldn't tell whether your rabbits were pregnant or not you need a new vet. A simple palpation of the rabbit's stomach would have determined pregnancy. Most likely if one is building a nest she is about to have babies. The does should be separated if they are together.
An adult rabbit can get up to 40cm length.
  == Answer ==   Rabbits tend to avoid plants in the nightsahde (solanacea) and onion (lily) families because they are not good for them. Pretty much everything else is fair game. They don't bother the corn leaves too much, but, they will eat the fruit (ears). I don't know about okra, but I...
  The best thing you can do is leave well alone! Rabbits are very good mothers and will care for their kits perfectly by themselves. Just make sure your doe has plenty of good quality hay, veggies and water and let her do her job. Remember a mother bun will only feed her kits once a day, so...
No, never give your rabbit anything salted.
Catnip is safe for rabbits to eat, although it's common for rabbits to avoid and dislike it. But, if your rabbit likes fresh catnip, there's nothing wrong with letting her eat it! However, most people recommend not giving your rabbit catnip cat toys because, as a general rule, dried herbs and spices...

Answer this question...A pet rabbit's diet typically consists of timothy-grass or other hay, a small amount of pellets, and a fair quantity of fresh vegetables. They also need unrestricted access to fresh clean water. Rabbits are social animals.
All bunnies should eat a variety of fresh veggies every day to maintain their health. Along with hay, which should always be available, and a limited amount of pellets, your bunny should be given a variety of leafy greens. Romain lettuce is a good staple, but other greens such as cilantro, parsley,...

Yes rabbits do shed but only once a year. Females shed to make a little nest for their young too.

Rabbits are not a good pet for your children. Believe it or not, rabbits take more work than a cat or dog. They do not live well in cages, so if you do choose to cage your rabbit, you will need to give it several hours a day outside his cage. This should probably be supervised time, and most...
Your rabbit should not be kept in conditions where his water can freeze. Rabbits prefer much of the same temperatures that we do. In the wild, they burrow underground where the temperatures are much warmer than at the surface. Yes, your rabbit may survive freezing cold temps, but he will be...

In Canada (Ontario) to neuter a male bunny is about $130 and to spay a female bunny $165. I have 3 bunnies, and I highly recommend this. They are healthier (80% of female bunnies get cancer if not spayed) and they are A LOT CALMER. They become more cuddly and they are calmer in the house. Also when...
The average around the country is about $250.

Yes, you certainly can! Rabbits love banana! Banana has a high sugar content, even more than other fruit, so just give your rabbit a small amount of banana as a treat.

Yes, they can, though white rabbits with blue eyes are quite rare. I've never seen a white blue-eyed rabbit before, only pictures on the internet, and they are really cute. They're called Albino rabbits. You can also get white rabbits with red eyes but watch out, because they can be a bit snappy and...

There are 2 ways that have worked for me. Submerge baby rabbit (except head) in warm water about 90 degrees and let water warm baby up. Then dry thoroughly and keep warm. OR put cold babies on a heating pad, warm not hot, and wrap up so no drafts can hit them. Wrapping in a flannel cloth so they are...

After 5 to 6 months, dwarf rabbits stop growing. Once it's fully grown, it can be difficult to tell the age of a rabbit. A vet with experience and knowledge in treating rabbits might be able to make an educated guess. Rabbits should see the vet on a regular basis for a physical exam and diagnostic...
White pet bunnies eat the same foods that all pet bunnies eat. Every breed of pet rabbit eats the same food because they were all bred from a single breed: the European Rabbit.Pet rabbits eat lots and lots of hay, fresh water, high quality pellets (the plain kind only; the sort mixed with seeds and...

Rabbits gnaw on everything!! What SHOULD rabbits gnaw on? Small pieces of tree limb ie: apple, peach, pear. DO NOT use apricot wood, it is poison. A 6 to 8 " piece will offer many hours of chewing which will help rabbits keep their teeth worn down AND help them avoid boredom.

No, they should be given water in a separate dish
None, if you want to keep your rabbit healthy just keep its cage clean and limit its exposer to the ground. domesticated rabbits have poor emume systems due to generations of inbreeding so the best defence is to limit exposer to germs.
First of all, Rabbits do not lay eggs from what I know, so therefore rabbits eggs aren't good because they do not exist!
Short answer, boredom. Or your rabbit may be seeking a favorite grain if you feed a grain in addition to a rabbit pellet. Solution get a feeder that hangs from/through your rabbit's cage (they have a wire bottom which allows dust to filter off the feed) and hang about 6 inches up from the floor....

Rabbits take alot of work. They need a fair amount of maintenance and vet bills can be expensive. They are like any other pet in the fact that you need to supply them with food, water, dry bed and shelter. Once you get a rabbit it is like a dog, they need check ups at the vet and this can be...
== Answer ==   She most likely has a severe tooth infection; the soiling will be excess salivation. A common cause of tooth trouble in rabbits is because of misaligned teeth, which cannot be kept down to size by the rabbit's chewing, so they can grow into the wall or palate of the mouth. However...
