Transcript of sensory system of rabbits

Sensory system of rabbits by Christian Lefebvre The sensory system The sensory system is responsible for processing sensory information. It allows organisms to see, hear, smell, feel, and taste. sensory receptors, neural pathways, and several parts of the brain make up the sensory system. Sight Rabbits have two large eyes on the sides of their heads. The placement gives them an almost 360 degree field of vision. This allows them to detect predators from all sides. rabbits are prey animals so most of their senses are
dedicated to ditection predators hearing Rabbits have large ears to aide their sense of hearing because it is one of their primary senses. They detect sound waves the bounce off objects in the environment to hear potential predators. Rabbits can hear over a mile away Smell Rabbits have over 100 million scent cells in their nose. To put this in perspective humans have 5 or 6 million. Smell is one of the rabbits primary senses, It is used to detect predators in its blind spot Taste Rabbits have 17,000 taste buds. Rabbits have use the taste buds to distinguish between toxic and nontoxic plants. Domestic rabbits can loose this ability. touch Rabbits have nerve endings all over their
body that allow them to feel. Rabbits also have whiskers that are as wide as their bodies with nerves at their tips. This is so
they can test the girth of openings sources http://www.hartz.com/Small_Animals/Getting_Started/small_animal_senses.aspx http://www.petplace.com/small-mammals/rabbit-senses-what-is-it-like-in-their-world/page1.aspx http://www.petplace.com/small-mammals/rabbit-senses-what-is-it-like-in-their-world/page1.aspx
