Go Rabbit!

When I was a kid, my mom used to take me to the state fair, but we wouldn't go on the rides. Instead, we would go to the livestock exhibition and I would run to the rabbit area and look for the cages with the bunny tails sticking out. I would then poke their tails, causing the rabbits to hop across the cage. This was super fun for me. This was before the Internet and PlayStation. This was the early 80's in Colorado.

So, do you want to know more about rabbits? I thought so.

  • A male rabbit is a buck; a female rabbit is a doe, and a baby rabbit is a kitten; a group of rabbits is a herd. I love it!
  • It's true that rabbits reproduce like crazy. They have a short gestation, start at it as early as four months old, and can have up to 25 baby rabbits in a litter. Suck on that, Ocotomom.
  • Rabbits can not vomit. Which means they drink a whole lot of Goldschlager with zero repercussions (ok the Goldschlager part is not true).
  • What's the difference between a rabbit and a hare? They belong to the same family- Leporidae, but they differ in genus and species. Hares are larger than rabbits and have longer hind legs and longer ears. A jackrabbit is actually a hare. Now you know.
  • What's the difference between a rabbit and a bunny? Nothing. Except, people tend to refer to pet rabbits or baby rabbits as bunnies.
  • Rabbits need lots of water. They can drink the same daily amount as 20 pound dog.
  • They do not carry rabies. So, there is no such thing as a rabid rabbit.
  • Rabbits have 28 teeth that never quit growing.
  • They can purr and snore. Adorable!
  • Eminem's character's name in 8 Mile was Rabbit
  • "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane was the first song to slip drug references past the radio censors.
  • The nervous, anxious character of the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland was crafted by Lewis Carroll to be a contrast to Alice's young and vivacious personality.
Whether you are nervous and anxious, or young and vivacious, or somewhere in between; here's a necklace for ya.' Don't be late.  http://www.etsy.com/listing/73038346/white-rabbit-necklace-retro-resin-alice
