Did you know that rabbits have behavioral adaptations such as thumping their foot to warn other rabbits of danger?

Did you know that female rabbits in colonies will often all give birth at the same time? This strategy is called ecosystem flooding as the ecosystem is flooded with so many prey animals that they cannot possibly all be eaten by predators.

Did you know rabbits’ large ears are not only for hearing? A rabbit’s ears help them to stay cool in hot weather.  Have your students read all about these and other interesting rabbit adaptations and behaviors in the great informational text unit on rabbits.
