More than half of the world’s rabbits live in North America.
Rabbits reproduce very quickly. This can be a major headache for people living in agricultural areas where rabbits are seen as pests.
Rabbits have long been recognized as symbols of fertility and rebirth, hence their association with spring and Easter.
Rabbits have extremely strong hind limbs which allow them to leap great distances. They can jump over three feet high and over nine feet long.
