NOTE: Rabbits’ teeth NEVER stop growing, so chewing is an important part of bunny enrichment. Providing your rabbit with chew toys is essential to keeping a happy and healthy bunny. This video is directed towards keeping your bunny from chewing up your personal items INSTEAD of their toys. I have my favorite bunny toys linked in my amazon shop (linked below). Enjoy!

My name is Amy and I am the Bunny Lady!
I am a lifelong rabbit lover and have been specializing with rabbits at my local animal shelter. I am here to make sure all of you rabbit caretakers have everything you need to have a happy and healthy bunny in your home.
My mission is to help you fellow rabbit lovers get all the resources you need to help your rabbits thrive. A happy bunny is the best companion, and they are worth all the trouble those little fluffballs cause.
How would a rabbit act if he suddenly turned into a zombie? Exactly like this. The tiny pet bunny rabbit was having fun, peacefully playing with his block – clawing and chewing to his heart’s content. Then, out of nowhere, the rabbit attacks – literally biting the hand that feeds him. Why did the rabbit do this? No one knows. Do rabbit bites hurt? Yes. A rabbit bite is the mixture of an excruciating puncture wound, mixed with an agonizing pinch. Basically like a velociraptor stabbing you, while slamming your hand in a door.
Why did we have a hand so close to the rabbit’s mouth? If the rabbit doesn’t have someone to hold his block and apply counterpressure, he quickly loses interest in it, because it just flips around aimlessly. If the rabbit’s ferocious jaws can’t find purchase, it is incredibly frustrating for such a powerful, majjestic creature who is used bending the world to his will. If the rabbit tries to chew, and the block moves, he will feel powerless and inadequate. Obviously, we don’t want him to get depressed. So we hold our hands close. And he bites them.

In this video, we will talk rabbit body language, and 15 strange things rabbits do, and explain the meaning behind them.
When your bunny appears to be bathing their belly and they come up chewing, they are actually eating a cecal pellet. Irabbits produce two types of droppings, fecal pellets and cecal pellets. It is from these cecal pellets that rabbits get the majority of their nutrition.
Scattered droppings signify that this territory belongs to the rabbit.
Rabbits mark their territory by spreading their poop around their home. These smelly messages warn other rabbits that the place belongs to them.
Territorial droppings often occur when a rabbit enters to a new environment, or when a new rabbit moves into the house.
Why rabbits rub their chin
Rabbits have scent glands under their chins that they use to mark their territory.
This will be particularly helpful when bunnies move in the dark and cannot see.
If you have more than one rabbit, you’ll notice that chinning occurs more frequently.
If your rabbit rubs her chin on you, This is a sign that your rabbit loves you and feels safe with you.
If your rabbit is chinning another rabbit, it is often a display of affection.
Why rabbits dig
Digging is normal rabbit behavior. In the wild, rabbits dig burrows to escape from predators and have a comfortable spot to rest.
Beyond instincts, bunnies also dig for fun, or to occupy themselves when they are bored or stressed.
Some rabbits dog to shorten their nails.
What rabbits thump their foot?
Among rabbits, thumping the back foot is a natural reaction to a threat that they may have seen, heard or smelled.
Back leg stomping can also be a sign of annoyance in the rabbit world.
If your bunny is feeling irritated about something, whether it’s you stroking their back for too long, they may thump their feet to indicate feeling irked or uneasy at the moment.
Why rabbits grind their teeth
When a rabbit grinds their teeth, they are communicating enjoyment. This is a rabbit’s way of purring.
But teeth grinding can also be a sign of discomfort or pain. Grinding due to pain is often more frequent and louder than grinding due to contentment.
Why rabbits get the zoomies
Running around at fast speeds indicate a happy bunny and your rabbit is running around out of pure joy and excitement.
Why rabbits lick
Rabbits lick you for a lot of reasons. They may want to show you affection and love. They may even want to groom you to show that they care about your well-being. Or they may simply enjoy the taste of your skin as you may have the residue of some yummy treat on your skin.
If your rabbit licks your clothes, they are probably showing you affection. Like chinning, licking is also a rabbit’s way to mark their territory, especially when the rabbit gives a few licks to the objects in the area.
Licking in this way helps rabbits to spread their scent.
Why rabbits twitch their nose.
Twitching their noses helps rabbits to smell better.
In rabbit body language, nose twitching is a sign of curiosity and alertness. If they’re curious about what’s going on, they waggle their nose fast to pick up the scents around them.
Rabbits may also twitch their nose fast to regulate their body temperature and cool off.
Why rabbits bite
Rabbits bite for a lot of reasons. Some rabbits may give you an innocent nip to get your attention, like when you stop petting them. By biting, your bunny is asking you to keep petting her.
Rabbits may also bite to stop unwanted actions or behaviors by humans or other animals
Generally, rabbits bite to show dominance, defend their food, or protect themselves.
Aggressive biting behavior can be prevented by spaying or neutering your bunny.
Why rabbits nudge.
Rabbits explore their environment by sniffing and nudging. They may nudge you to greet you, say Hello to you, or investigate you. They may even nudge to get your attention or demand to be groomed, like when they want you to pet them.
However, a nudge can also mean, “you’re in my way!” or “Move please!”.
Why rabbits growl
Growling is a clear sign that your rabbit is angry or stressed.
Why rabbits binky
Binkying is a large jump in the air while the rabbit slightly twists its body or head at the same time. Rabbits binky when they feel very happy or excited.
Why rabbits spray
Some rabbits mark their territory by urinating on objects, other rabbits, people or everything in the range. This process is known as ‘spraying’.
Spraying is often directed at vertical surfaces.
Spraying a jet of urine on humans is usually the way rabbits show love for their owners.
Neutering or spaying your rabbit is an effective way to prevent them from spraying urine.
Why Rabbits twitch in their sleep
When your rabbit is sleeping, you may notice head, cheek, or even full-body twitches. Rabbits dream during the REM stage of sleep, and those twitches are responses to whatever’s happening in their dreams.
