Fact Number 7: Rabbits Have Lots of Babies.

Rabbits are known for giving birth to a lot of babies in a year, with up to nine bunnies at a time.

The mother rabbit often hides away for most of the day to avoid drawing predators’ attention. Her job is to produce young, fast! They grow quickly from being with other siblings soon after birth; babies stay together as a family even when they get older.
