Cute or not cute?
Did you know that although we think rabbits are adorable in the US, Australia sees rabbits more of a nuisance than anything else?
Apparently rabbits are everywhere, like rodents in many areas. They get into gardens and pester. I have heard of this before from farmers, but didn’t know the sentiment was shared with a whole other country.
In Australia, rabbit populations are considered a serious “mammalian pest” and are considered invasive mammals causing millions of dollars of damage to crops.
European wild rabbits were introduced to Australia in 1859 so they could be hunted for sport. Within a short 50 year period following this, the rabbit population spread across the entire continent. They devastated Australia’s indigenous flora and fauna.
This proliferation of rabbits was the fastest a mammal was introduced to a country ever. The continent now is home to at least 150 million feral rabbits. Basically, the rabbit is the country’s pest.
Can you believe that?
I mean, I lived in New York and have seen rats as big as cats. Now THAT is a pest. At least the bunnies are adorable. However, I guess you have to be there to understand. To us, they remain a treasured pet and part of the farm animal ensemble.

You can discover a lot of information about rabbits besides them being a pest in Australia.
Now we know rabbits breed fast and breed a lot. The world’s largest rabbit measured at 129.53 cm tall (4 ft. 3 in.) and weighed 22 kg. (49 lbs.).
Rabbits, like cats, purr when they are happy and relaxed. Rabbits can jump as high as 90 centimeters in the air – in one leap.
A baby rabbit is called a kit, a female is called a doe and a male is called a buck.
Whether you see rabbits as a pest or an adorable cuddly creature, studying them in your homeschool will be loads of fun!
