Are rabbits mammals ?

Rabbit is a mammalian animal of the hare family, a detachment of rodents. The structure of the teeth is peculiar. The newborn rabbit has 12 milk teeth, the adult – 28. They do not have fangs.

The most characteristic feature of rabbits-rodents is the device of their incisors. They can gnaw hard grains, stems and roots, bark and wood. It would seem that with such work the incisors should very soon become blunt and erased like the best steel chisels wear out.

However, this does not happen with the teeth of rabbits. The fact is that the incisors in them constantly grow at the base (just as our nails grow up), so when they are sewn, they do not get shorter. In addition, they are not covered with enamel from all sides, but only from the front. Since the enamel is harder than the dental bone, the front wall is erased less than the back and always creates a sharp cutting edge.

The backbone of rabbits consists of an axial backbone, the components of which are the vertebral column and skull, as well as the backbone of the thoracic and pelvic limbs. The skeleton of the trunk is divided into the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and caudal divisions. The skull is somewhat elongated in length
