It upsets me that there isn't much research done about these wild rabbits. I am interested in the different types and how they survive

What a nice list you compiled. I feel as you do, Brittany, they deserve to be researched in depth. Rabbits are exploited in laboratories and yet they are such interesting creatures in the wild. Maybe one day you can be a rabbit researcher... that would be cool!

Rabbitologist?

I would love to study bunnies. I would have to learn to be stealthy, because I squeal when I see Chacha

I was looking at some of that stuff on the itsnature.org website. Want nightmares? Go to the link: 22 Animals that will keep you dry. Seriously scary looking things. I'm all shivery from looking at those things.
