Fascinating Facts About Rabbits ~ #1

Rabbits really are a busy bunch. A rabbit is ready to start breeding at just 3 to 8 months old. Once they reach that point, they can copulate eight months out of the year every year for the rest of their 9- to 12-year lifespan. 

A doe’s reproductive system doesn’t follow cycles; instead, ovulation is triggered by intercourse. After a 30-day gestation period she’ll give birth to a litter of about four to 12 kits.

Now you know the rest of the story. And rabbit are still adorable to me.

  1. Have you ever eaten rabbit? I tried it once when I was kid. It was fried up and it tasted sort of like chicken. I’m OK with that being a one-time experience though. Instead of carrying a lucky rabbit’s foot, I ate one.
