Under favorable conditions, the number of rabbits can reach 12. The young are born blind and naked. Seen on the tenth day, and at the age of three weeks independently eat. Rabbits live 8-10 years.
The rabbit equips the nest for the young, plucking the fur from his chest.

A special eye device allows rabbits to see everything that happens behind them without turning their heads.
