The average healthy adult rabbit can travel up to 6 miles in a single night.
If young at the start of spring, it is likely that they will breed within two or three months after birth, producing litters every 30 days for about 12 months. Over this time, rabbits may produce more than ten young, so their population can grow quite quickly.
Rabbits are prey animals, so they have evolved to be very resourceful in order to protect themselves from predators. They can travel long distances in a single night to avoid being caught.
In addition to their speed and agility, rabbits also use their sense of smell to help them navigate their environment. They have a powerful sense of smell that allows them to detect danger and food sources from long distances.
Rabbits are also very social animals and typically live in large groups. This helps them to better protect themselves from predators and also allows them to find food and shelter more easily.
