what do bunnies eat?
Bunnies, or rabbits, are herbivores most notable for their long ears and ability to run at high speeds. In the wild, bunnies graze on grasses, clover, and other leafy plants like dandelions, chickweed and yarrow. Initially, they nibble lots of grass to ensure that they get the calories they need. If they feel safe, the bunnies will then move on to more choice plants. Many wild rabbits also enjoy perusing gardens and will munch on carrot tops, lettuce and spinach very happily.
Domesticated bunnies usually eat a special hay and pellet diet that can be found in pet stores, but they appreciate treats in the form of most vegetables. Carrots, lettuce, celery leaves, beet tops and broccoli are all rabbit favorites, but should only be given in moderation to avoid overloading their digestive system.
