Let’s explore the snoozing habits of these delightful animal companions and see if your bun is sleeping enough to keep him healthy.
Like humans, how long rabbits sleep varies. Studies on buns show that they sleep between 8-12 hours on average.
Rabbits sleep from late morning until early in the evening and then snooze again in the middle of the night until around dawn.
Free-roaming rabbits can sleep anywhere they please, and you’ll be surprised at some of the spots they choose.
A rabbit’s crepuscular nature enables him to sleep in total darkness, with the light on or anywhere in between.
You might not know it, but your rabbit could be taking a nap right in front of you. That’s because rabbits can sleep with their eyes open.
