Many mistake a rabbit for a hare and vice versa. And yet these two animal species differ in many characteristics such as body size, weight or reproductive behaviours. Unlike hares, rabbits can also be kept as pets.
In ancient times wild rabbits, from which our pet rabbits originate, were domiciled on the Iberian Peninsula and in the south of France. Today they are found nearly everywhere in the world. In the wild these animals live in big communities and dig underground constructions. Rabbits leave their hutches at dawn for food but for safety reasons never go far from their hutch.
After an average of 30 days gestation time, the female gives birth to three to four babies and this, four to six times a year. Thus rabbits multiply extremely fast.
