Fun Facts About Rabbits

September 15, 2021

September 25th is International Rabbit Day! These adorable little balls of fur really make great pets. Floppy is quite different from Floppy and Fido, though, so first-time bunny owners often face a bit of a learning curve. We can help! In this article, a San Antonio, TX vet lists some fun facts about rabbits.

Bunny Physics

Floppy’s most prominent attribute may very well be her cute ears. These are of course great for listening, but they also help your furry friend regulate her body temperature. They can also rotate 270 degrees, which is almost full circle!

Chomp Chomp

Rabbit teeth are also quite interesting. Those little choppers never stop growing! You’ll need to provide your cute little pet with lots of suitable chew toys. Fortunately, many of the things you can find around the house make great bunny playthings. Floppy can gnaw on plain cardboard or paper, or many wooden items. Ask your vet for specific advice.

Rabbit Noises

Rabbits are considered quiet pets. They don’t make as much noise as dogs, cats, or birds, but they aren’t entirely silent. Floppy actually has a range of vocalizations, including honking, screeching, and even growling.

Sweet Tooth

Like any other pet, rabbits love treats. Floppy tends to go a bit crazy for sweets. Giving your pet small amounts of safe fruits, such as strawberries, is bound to score you some points. Just stick with safe foods, and don’t overindulge your pet’s sweet tooth. Ask your vet for nutritional advice, including portion sizes.


Rabbits are very social, and can form very strong bonds with both their humans. Some bunnies even sleep in their humans’ laps! 

Record Breaking Bunnies

Every now and then, Floppy makes it into the Guinness Book of World Records. A few rabbits of note? First up, we have Ralph, who holds the record for being the biggest bunny ever. This British furball weighed in at a whopping 55 pounds! Another bunny made it in for sheer longevity, after living 17 years. (In comparison, the average rabbit lifespan is 5-10 years.)


This may be the cutest thing on the list. When rabbits are happy, they sometimes literally jump for joy. This is officially known as a binky, and yes, it’s as adorable as it sounds.
