A rabbit is a small furry mammal with a short tail and pointed ears. Rabbits live in burrow in the ground. Each burrow is the home of a single family. The first Fossils which can be attributed to this family come from North America, but now they’re found in every part of the world. Compared to its small body, rabbit has larged sized ears.
A rabbit is a weak and timid animal and it always surrounding by many enemies. There fore nature has gifted it with large ears to help it to hear even the fun of drop sound. The large area of the ear catches almost every sound wave produced in the air and transfers them into the inner ear. This makes the rabbit to detect its enemies in time and run to safety zones.
You must have noticed that a rabbit whases its ears by repeatedly licking its forepaws and rubbing them over the surface of its ears. It does this in order to keep its ears clean and also to take into its mouth natural oil which surrounds the ear surface. This oil is important in forming vitamin D which is necessary for the growth of healthy bones. If the rabbit is not allowed to form this, it will develop rickets.
