Rabbits are outside animals, who use their fur to keep themselves warm. The proper temperature range for a rabbit is between 50°F and 90°F (between 10°C and 32°C). Because rabbits do not have much body fat, anything below this temperature can be dangerous or even fatal.
If the temperature falls below 45°F, water bottles should be covered or frozen so that they won’t become dangerously hot when filled with water.
Rabbits living inside should have a temperature between 65°F and 75°F (18°C and 24°C), with a relative humidity of 45 to 55 percent. If the temperature falls below 60°F, provide supplemental heating. Remember that rabbits like to hop and should have plenty of space to run around to keep warm.
