Rabbits' environmental needs

Rabbits need to be able to hop and stand up in their environment, this means the minimum requirements for their housing should be L3M X W2M X H1M. Their hutch should be in a sheltered position, out of direct sunlight, clean and protected from extreme weather conditions. They should also be allowed daily access to exercise, e.g. a large, secure run which they can hop and stand upright in. It is also important to provide your rabbit with entertainment, such as tunnels, as they are naturally playful and inquisitive creatures and would naturally spend a large proportion of their day foraging and investigating their territory in the wild.
