Rabbits are small social mammals whose habitats include meadows, woods, forests, grasslands, deserts and wetlands. Rabbits live in groups, and the best known species, the European rabbit, lives in underground burrows, or rabbit holes. They have as much colour variation among themselves as other livestock and pet animals and their fur is prized for its softness. They are playful and inquisitive and are most active during the early morning, late afternoon and evening.
Minimum loan period is 1 week, maximum loan period is 2 weeks. Each loan animal is provided with food for the loan period, large run and a “How to Keep” sheet. Our rabbits can be handled under strictly controlled and supervised conditions, more information can be found on the “How to Keep” sheet.
We recommend our members do a full risk assessment for the loan acknowledging the individuality of each classroom environment and the students therein.
