Is a rabbit a good pet for a child?
A rabbit isn't a bad pet for a child, with supervision, it is a good way of teaching them to have some responsibility, depending on their age.
It mainly depends on the temperament of the rabbit and how 'mature' your young child is. I have found that, although a little larger, the sweet tempered and calm Havana Rabbit is better suited to be a pet for a young child. Of course all live animals should be supervised when in the care of a child.
There are both wild and pet rabbits. It is not a good idea to catch a wild rabbit and try to make a pet of it, because their habits are somewhat different from domesticated (pet) rabbits, and they can be very nervous and may even die of fright if caught. Pet rabbits can be bought at pet stores or from breeders.
