Spring Rabbit FINE ART PRINT
My rabbit fine art print is very bright and colourful. If you are looking for an artwork to add a bit of colour in a realistic way this is your fella. I really wanted to push the boundaries with this one with flowers and then decided on adding a bee to add interest. I absolutely loved how it turned out, and it has shaped my newer drawings considerably.
SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT Rabbits
- Rabbits and hares are “lagomorphs”, an order that also includes the pika
- Rabbits are born blind, naked, and remain in a fur-lined nest for the first days of their lives. Hares are born with their eyes open, hair covering their bodies, and they can run within a few minutes of birth (much like a Guinea pig!).
- Jackrabbits can run 45 miles per hour!
- A baby rabbit is known as a kit, a female is called a doe, and a male is a buck. A group of rabbits is a herd.
- Happy rabbits practice a cute behavior known as a “binky:” they jump up in the air and twist and spin around!
- Pet rabbits are able to learn their name and do tricks.
- The average size of a rabbit litter is usually between 4 and 12 babies.
- A rabbit’s lifespan is about 8 years, though spayed/neutered they can live as long as 10-12 years.
- A rabbit’s teeth never stop growing
- There are 25 species of wild rabbits, and there are at least 305 breeds of domestic rabbit in 70 countries around the world.
- In some places such as Queensland, Australia rabbits are illegal.
- Predators of the rabbit include cats (both domestic and wild), dogs, wolves, and birds of prey such as hawks and falcons. Even raccoons attack rabbits. Rabbits are low on the food chain in the wild. They also can die simply from the stress of smelling or hearing a predator nearby – even if they aren’t attacked.
