  • Rabbits and hare can purr similar to a cat.
  • Hare meat is considered to be one of the most protein rich meats.

Contrary to what pop culture tells us especially cartoons like Bugs Bunny, rabbits do not eat carrots. Rabbits don’t eat any root vegetables due to their high sugar content and can only munch on them as treats if given any form time to time.
