    EDUCATIONAL TIPS

    About Rabbits
    Pet rabbits kept indoors are referred to as house rabbits. Rabbits can be trained to use a litter box and there are some that can even learn to come when called. However your house must be "rabbit proofed". Rabbits will chew electrical cords, wood and carpet. Some pet rabbits live outdoors in hutches if the weather is amenable. Due to their fragile nature, rabbits are best pets for children at least 10 years of age. Rabbits have a relatively long life span of 6-7 years or more.
