Breeds of rabbits
There are 50 breeds of rabbits and some of them are a long-eared, short-tailed, burrowing warm-blooded mammal with soft fur. Rabbits are actually more closely related to horses than they are to a rat or a mouse.
Habitat
Rabbit habitats include meadows, woods, forests, grasslands, deserts, the snow and wetlands. Warrens can be as deep as 3 meters underground.
Adaptions
Pet rabbits often live in cages, though many rabbit owners let their pets run freely throughout their home for exercise and only place the rabbit in a cage for sleeping.
Ears
Rabbits are mammals with long ears so they can catch sound from any direction so they know when a predator is coming. Rabbits have long ears which can be as long as 10 cm. Rabbits ears help them to keep warm because if your head is warm usually it helps your body to be warm.
Fur
Rabbits have thin fur in summer and spring because of the heat
Rabbits have think fur in winter because if they don’t they would get cold

Smell, hearing and vision
Rabbits have an excellent sense of smell, hearing and vision to help them to know when a predator is coming and also to know if what they are eating is the correct food or not.
Legs
Rabbits have extremely strong back legs which allow them to leap great distance which helps get away from predator to protect themselves and also if they need to get food and the food is in a tree they can get their food easily but that doesn't mean it will be easy to get away or get food.
Rabbits can the jump up to one meter high and three meters long.

Reproducing
Rabbits try to reproduce so quickly to make other animals scared because they know there are so, so many rabbits. Rabbits reproduce to help them to adapt to environment faster then most animals.
Feet
Rabbits have large soft feet to help them run in meadows, woods, forests, grasslands, deserts, the snow and wetlands so they don't hurt them selves.
Teeth
Rabbits have a wide jaw and extra teeth.
These extra teeth allow the rabbits to chew
through tough plant material. As a result, the rabbit needs to chew through the plant life to keep the teeth eroded, thus ensuring their survival.

Tail
During flight from predators in vegetated areas, a long and bushy tail would hinder or snag in the plant life. The small cotton tail does not get stuck or extend out preventing predators from latching on.


Diet
Wild rabbits are classic herbivores. In the coldest times of the year, they chow down on lots of green vegetation, woody shoots and tree bark, In the spring and summer, wild rabbits focus their attentions on crops, flowers, grass and clovers.


Camouflage
In order to avoid predators, rabbits have evolved a natural camouflage. Their coats blend in with the native vegetation in their habitat, making them hard to detect. They are brown in the summer months and become increasingly white in the fall before turning brown again in the spring.

Burrows
Rabbits dig burrows as their houses. Basically, their burrows are where they hide from their predators. It also shelters them from horrible weather. Another thing is that they can store food in their burrows. It just makes their lives a lot easier.
Rabbits have long ears which can be as long as 10 cm and can be many, many different colours depending on the breed.
