Why are carrots orange?

The common carrot as seen everyday is orange. Carrots reflect orange light to the eyes from the carotene that they contain. Orange carrots were first created and mass farmed by the Dutch in the 1600's. There are also white, purple, yellow and red carrots.

Carrots absorb certain wavelengths of light more efficiently than others, and this makes them appear orange. Beta-carotene is the main pigment and is mainly absorbs light in the 400-500nm region of the visible spectrum with a peak absorption at about 450nm. Carotenoids are one of the most important groups of natural pigments. They cause the yellow/orange colors of many fruit and vegetables. Though beta-carotene is most abundant in carrots, it is also found in apricots, pumpkins and nectarines. Dark green vegetables like spinach and broccoli are another good source. In those, the green color of chlorophyll masks the orange color. When leaves on trees die in autumn, you can see the underlying colors which come from carotenoids and sugars.

Are carrots poisonous to rabbits?

No, carrots are not poisonous to rabbits.

Carrot greens (carrot tops) are excellent for rabbits and can be included regularly in a pet rabbit's daily "salad." Carrots themselves are nutritious but also high in sugar, which makes them a great treat for rabbits, but too many treats will make a rabbit sick. The House Rabbit Society recommends no more than 2 tablespoons of treat food per day for a normal, healthy 6 pound adult rabbit. See the related question below for more info and helpful links about a pet rabbit diet.
