Often associated with spring and Easter, fluffy bunnies and rabbits are also synonymous with undeniably cute animals. You may have read the Velveteen Rabbit as a child or seen Bambi – where rabbits are portrayed as sweet, sympathetic characters. However, wild rabbits are relatively independent and territorial creatures, making them prone to aggression when they have not been domesticated as household pets. Read Rabbits and learn about the many breeds found across the world, from the Riverine rabbit, solitary and nocturnal, one of the most endangered animals in the world, to the French Angora, docile and sociable, often bred for the long hair of its coat, known as Angora wool. Discover the miniature lop, which with its cute floppy ears and button nose, rarely weighs more than three kilograms (six pounds); learn how rabbits and hares use their large, translucent ears to regulate their body temperature; and see how the black-tailed jackrabbit can run at speeds of 65 km/h (40 mph) to dodge predators in the deserts of North America. With informative, detailed captions accompanying each image explaining the origins, habitat and behaviour of these unmistakable hunters, Rabbits is a vivid pictorial guide in 130 brilliant photographs.
