Transcript of Rabbits in natural selection

Natural Variation Rabbits Amami Rabbit Cottontail Rabbit Overview Natural Variation Natural Variation Overview Angora Rabbit Overview European Rabbit European Rabbits are some of the most common rabbits, because they are what you would find in somebody's home, usually they are breed, which is artificial selection to have wanted traits like smooth, or fluffy hair, or an all white coat. But natural variation happens too, if you were to find one in the wild you might find something interesting. They mostly eat in grassy pastures but they are a light grayish color most of the time so they do not blend in, to counter this this type of rabbits have developed slightly longer ears to let them hear a predator sneaking up on them. Also they are well known for digging burrows and tunnels that let them hide very easily from there predators. The Amami Rabbit is not one of the well know types of rabbits and is in the mid range of endangered species. They are most commonly found in lower small parts of japan and nearby areas. They are nocturnal and a forest dweller and dig holes to stay warm and protect their babies. The Amami Rabbit has a few evolutionary traits that are supposed to help it survive. For instance it has long sharp claws that are very good for digging holes and also climbing up trees. But they are often called the living fossil because they are very old, ancient creatures and that is about it for them. The Cottontail are probably the second most common rabbit that you will find because there are most likely the ones that you will find in your backyard or around your house. There are a couple key traits that the Cottontail Rabbits have. One for instance is that they can hold food in its front paws and spin the food in circles to devour it quickly, and then they will use their noses to adjust it. Another trait is that have cupped, swivel-able ears that can pick up faint sounds very efficiently. Rabbits are a small mammal in the class of Leporidae which are made up of 60 different species of Rabbits and Hares which all have some things in common like having four incisors, hind legs, elongated ears and short fury tails. Rabbits are a very common house pet, but you can also find them in the wild. Natural Variation The angora rabbit does not have many natural selcection traits because it is usually bread for its long silky, puffy, hair. Thank You
