Rabbits are small mammals found in several parts of the world. The most common and well known is the European rabbit. Rabbits live in groups, and all species apart from the Cottontail live in underground burrows, or rabbit holes. A group of burrows is called a warren. Rabbits are herbivores that feed by grazing on grass and leafy weeds.
Fun fact: A male rabbit is called a buck and a female a doe; a young rabbit is a kit
