Getting to know the dwarf rabbit language (III)

Dwarf rabbits and any animal in general have to ability to express their feelings and needs, not as humans do, but they do “speak” an animal language, and as an owner and rabbit lover you have to learn to understand your little furry friend.

Here, we present some typical rabbit behaviors that you have overlooked, but that actually were direct messages from your pet rabbit to you:

  • Hitting the floor with the posterior legs. This means little rabbit is scared, so when you hear the noise made by his back legs go and make it know there is nothing to be afraid of.
  • Peeing around. Non-castrated adult female and male dwarf rabbits will demark their territories leaving on their way an annoying leaking for you to clean up. Males might also pee over the females to address possession.
  • Scattering feces. The dwarf rabbit is such a territorial little creature, and one way to demark its territory is by scattering its poops. This particularly happens when it is in new places. It becomes a custom when another dwarf rabbit is in the same place.
  • Rubbing with the chin. Their chins have smell glands; therefore they rub all their belongings with their chins.
  • False pregnancy. Some female dwarf rabbits that have been sterilized build nests with straw and hairs from their bellies they tear out to clear their teats. They may also stop eating as female rabbits do before they give birth.
