Is yawning contagious?
yawning is contagious only if someone sees you do it ... as a sort of social action. It is not contagious in the disease sense. The physiologic function of yawning is to relieve the imbalance between where the blood flows in the lungs (mainly at the base) and where the air flows (mainly at the apex). Note that this is a problem mostly when you are in an upright posture. Yawning is contagious, at least to humans. Many animals yawn, but only dogs, chimps, and humans are known to yawn after someone else does. There is no conclusive evidence why we yawn to begin with, but it's possible that contagious yawning may have something to do with social bonding and empathy. For example, autistic people tend not to yawn after another person does, and children under the age of four don't do it either. This suggests that yawning after someone else is a sympathetic and social act, similar to unconscious mimicking. When tired, yawning is psychologically "contagious", but not physically contagious in the most common sense of the word.

What vegetables can rabbits eat and how much per day?
Rabbits should eat pellets and Timothy hay (found at most pet stores) as the main staple of their diet. A rabbit under 6 pounds should eat about 1/2 cup of pellets. A rabbit under 10 pounds should have about 1 cup of pellets. Fully grown rabbits should have an unlimited supply of hay (but rabbits under 4 weeks old should have Alfalfa hay). Rabbits' diets should also be supplemented by fruits and vegetables, about 1 cup combined per 5lbs of rabbit per day.

Do bunnies have a special place they like to be petted?
Like humans, all rabbits have their own unique personalities and preferences. Some rabbits love to be massaged on the head, while others hated being even touched their and would rather be stroked gently on the back. As a general rule though, most rabbits dislike being touched under their head, around their chin, and on their tummies.
