In the Chinese calendar, 2023 is the year of the rabbit, and it will officially start on January 22nd. In Chinese culture, rabbits are a symbol of peace, prosperity, and longevity. So here are five fun facts that will make you appreciate these adorable animals even more.

Growing Teeth

Rabbits mostly eat grass, hay, wildflowers, and vegetables, and that’s not a coincidence. Their teeth never stop growing, and these types of foods can help them wear them down so they wouldn’t get too long.

Rabbit Binkies

Have you ever noticed that rabbits have a habit to jump and twist their head in mid-air when they’re really happy? Well, it turns out there’s a name for this playful leap—a rabbit binky.

Sensitive Ears

It’s no secret that rabbits have exceptionally amazing hearing thanks to their large ears, but did you know that they can turn their ears by 180 degrees and use them to radiate away excess heat?

Amazing Vision

Rabbits can also keep a close watch for predators because they have 360-degree vision, despite the fact they’re born with their eyes shot.

Rabbits & Carrots

Carrots are often seen as rabbits’ favorite food, probably thanks to Bugs Bunny, but they can actually give you bunny an upset stomach because they’re too high in sugar.
