Rabbits are small mammals that live in groups. It is one of the most common pests in urban and suburban areas, but can be found in all habitat types. They can produce 3 to 4 litters of young per year. They are herbivores that feed by grazing on grass, forbs, and leafy weeds. Rabbits graze heavily and rapidly for roughly the first half hour of a grazing period (usually in the late afternoon), followed by about half an hour of more selective feeding.
