"Anyone who knows domesticated rabbits well has stories of bunny bravado." I wasn't ready to stop yet and one guy asked me to give an example so I continued. "At Easter every year I hear at least one story of a small child with the tip of a finger bitten off when they are posed for portraits with rabbits. I have seen a 4 lb. lop eared rabbit run across a room at full speed to body slam a misbehaving cat three times their size. I have witnessed a 2 ½ lb. nine year old neutered male rabbit herd his female partner to a far corner away from a perceived threat. The male rabbit returned to meet the danger alone – a large 12 lb. one year old rabbit. Fortunately, they were separated from a bunny brawl by a puppy pen fence because rabbits can do significant damage to each other. Did you know as a survival mechanism all rabbits can stomach eating their own feces every night. They have 17,000 taste buds and we humans only have 10,000. That's macho." I had stayed calm during my little lecture. I realized I had been waiting a long time to say this to the bunny bashers.
