Rabbits are tiny animals that belong to the order Lagomorpha and belong to the family Leporidae (together with the hare) (along with the pika). The European rabbit species and its descendants, the world’s 305 domestic rabbit breeds, are all members of the Oryctolagus cuniculus genus. There are 13 different varieties of wild rabbits in the Sylvilagus genus, including seven different cottontails.

The European rabbit, which has been brought to every continent except Antarctica, is well-known as a wild hunt species as well as a domesticated livestock and pet all over the world. The rabbit (or bunny) is a component of everyday life in many parts of the world, serving as food, clothing, a friend, and a source of creative inspiration, thanks to its extensive impact on ecologies and civilizations.

Rabbits, which were long thought to be rodents, have been revealed to have diverged separately and earlier than their rodent counterparts, and to have a variety of characteristics that rodents lack, such as two additional incisors.

Bucks are male rabbits, whereas does are female rabbits. Coney (derived ultimately from the Latin cuniculus) is an ancient word for an adult rabbit, whereas rabbit used to refer solely to the young animals. Bunny is another word for a juvenile rabbit, however it is also used informally (especially by youngsters) to refer to rabbits in general, especially domestic rabbits. Kit or kitten is a word that has lately been used to refer to a juvenile rabbit.

A colony or nest of rabbits is a group of them (or, occasionally, a warren, though this more commonly refers to where the rabbits live). A litter refers to a group of young rabbits born from a single mating, whereas a herd refers to a group of domestic rabbits living together.


Hares are precocial, meaning they are born relatively developed, mobile, and with hair and decent vision, but rabbits are altricial, meaning they are born hairless and blind, and require more attention. Hares (and cottontail rabbits) live alone in a small nest above ground, whereas most rabbits live in burrows or warrens in social groupings. Hares are usually bigger than rabbits, with longer ears and larger and longer hind legs. Hares have not been domesticated, but European rabbit descendants are frequently grown as livestock and kept as pets.

Rabbits have been domesticated for a long time. Starting in ancient Rome, the European rabbit has been commonly reared as livestock since the Middle Ages. Selective breeding has resulted in a diverse range of rabbit breeds, many of which have been kept as pets since the early nineteenth century. Some rabbit breeds have been developed particularly for scientific purposes.

Rabbits are bred as livestock for their meat and fur. Because the first varieties were significant meat sources, they grew to be larger than wild rabbits, although current domestic rabbits range in size from dwarf to gigantic. Rabbit fur comes in a variety of coat colors, patterns, and lengths, and is appreciated for its softness. For example, the Angora rabbit breed was created for its long, silky hair, which is frequently hand-spun into yarn. Other domestic rabbit breeds, such as the Rex, which has a short plush coat, were bred especially for the commercial fur trade.
