That is my question, I know a lot of animals are color blind, I know most dogs can't see the color red so I was wondering are bunnies color blind? do they see in black and white or do they see some colors?

thx.

I've always heard bunnies can see color, but just checked online and found the below article. it sounds like they have limited color sight, not as expanded as humans.

this article is pretty interesting since it talks about rabbit vision and sight:

The phrase " a scary box" cracked me up for some reason right now.

i'm glad you enjoyed it maghy7 :-) there's still so much that vets are learning about bunnies. i try to keep up on reading articles, since there's often something new to learn.
