The rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is a descendent of rabbits originally found on the European continent around the Western Mediterranean region. Agriculture has allowed the European rabbit to spread across the continent. The wild rabbit tends to prefer grasslands where there is plenty of food but also plenty of cover & burrowing options: they are prey animals & need retreat places. Being highly social, they live in groups that provide safety in numbers: many pairs of eyes and ears will more easily spot or hear a predator. Rabbits are active, inquisitive animals especially when in captivity. Therefore they need enrichment or they will become bored and emotionally distressed.The rabbit is an inquisitive and intelligent animal and that intelligence can be seen to be extensive when in captivity. In the wild, their intelligence is aimed at survival but in captivity, where dangers are considerably lessened, it manifests itself in behaviours not expected in the rabbit. This course explores what rabbits need and includes information about health, nutrition, environmental enrichment, accommodation and more.  This rabbit care course is of relevance to rabbit owners and those caring for them in animal charity and boarding environments.
