Rabbits and Children

Contrary to myth, rabbits and small children may not be a good mix.

The natural exuberance, rambunctiousness and decibel level of even the gentlest toddler can be extremely stressful to rabbits.

Children want a companion they can hold and cuddle, but rabbits need to spend most of the time on the ground. Picking up a rabbit the wrong way or dropping them can seriously injure the rabbit. Quiet mature children (usually ten or older) and adults make the best human companions for rabbits.
