Bunnies are fun animals because of their lucky, adorable appearance. They are small mammals with fluffy, short tails, whiskers and distinctive long ears, which they are lucky to have. Their long ears, up to 3 in. (7.5 cm) long, are used for picking up sounds over considerable distances, perhaps up to 3km, their ears can be rotated 270 degrees to help detect the source of a sound, which helps them hear predators not close by, and can revolve independently to monitor different noises.These interesting, lucky, features are VERY helpful indeed. Second, they assist in thermoregulation. They also have powerful muscled hind legs that allow for maximum force, maneuverability, and acceleration that is divided into three main parts; foot, thigh, and leg. The hind limbs of a rabbit are an exaggerated feature, that are much longer than the forelimbs providing more force so that they can be used for both short sprints and grappling, which means that they need to be flexible and durable. They can jump VERY GOOD, and I’m not kidding! Of course in contrast, canids, which often pursue their prey over greater distances, have longer, more gracile limbs. Their fur has lots of different varieties. Here are some of them: gray; Three different colors of hair: black, black with tan tip, and black with a tan band, and slate undercolor. Light gray: Agouti with slate blue at the base of the hair, off-white in the middle, and light gray at the tip with black tipped guard hairs. Lilac: Pinkish pale gray. They have 2 pairs of sharp incisors (front teeth), one pair on top and one pair on the bottom. They also have 2 peg teeth behind the top incisors.
Bunnies are lucky animals because of their appearance, the many different types, and funny behaviors.
Bunnies are also fun animals because of their many, many, MANY different types, which makes them EVEN LUCKIER!!! Bunnies are in the taxonomic family, Leporidae, and there are 29 species of bunnies in 10 generas found on all continents except Antarctica. The American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) recognizes 49 unique, lucky, rabbit breeds. There are 17 species of Sylvilagus (cottontails) in North and South America, and some of the best-known species. While they live in many different environments, they have many things in common such as their legs, and sometimes ears but in different lengths and sizes. The main differences in species are in things like their colors, ears, and eyes. Some of the luckiest types to keep for pets are Holland Lops, English Lops, and Lionheads. Finally, bunnies are fun because of their tummy-hurting-laughing-behaviors. Bunnies love toys and some will play for HOURS by snuggling with a favorite toy, such as Paper Bags and Cardboard boxes. They are also capable of using logic to solve problems, and can be taught tricks like sealing a wallet and opening it, or walking backwards. Another fun fact is that they apologize by touching heads. If the rabbits groom each other after touching heads, then the apology has been officially accepted. These furry cute critters can also learn a range of human words such as yum-yum, come, let’s go, no, box, all gone, nite-nite, bye-bye, go-go-go, and you’re such a handsome fellow/girl, and to show that they understand they use their ears, tail, nose, and body position to tell us exactly what they mean. If you have a bunny, you are in LUCK! Why? Happy bunnies practice a cute behavior known as “binky:” they jump in the air, twist, and spin around! Watching a bunny groom themselves, doing tricks, playing and jumping in the air can be hours of fun, and luck of having a bunny for a bunny owner.
