This book offers answers - from the mundane to the unbelievable - to many important questions about the world of lagomorphs. To some, rabbits are simply a docile pet for the classroom or home. To others, they are the cute animals munching on clover or the pests plaguing vegetable gardens.
The authors show that they are a more complex group than first imagined by answering 95 frequently asked questions about these familiar and fascinating animals. Alongside informative photographs is an accessible text that covers their anatomy and physiology, evolutionary history, ecology, conservation, behavior and the rabbit-human relationships.
