Rabbits are long-eared, ground dwelling mammals. They inhabit places such as deserts, tropical forests, and wetlands. They eat mostly grasses and herbs.

Rabbits are well known for quickly producing offspring. Many rabbits can produce four or five litters of baby bunnies per year. Each litter may have up to seven cute baby bunnies.

Baby bunnies have long, soft fur. It is usually brown or gray in color. And they have a small tuft of delicate fur that makes up their tail. They are quiet and cuddly and can make good pets.

Bunnies are usually silent. But sometimes they thump a foot loudly against the ground. This behavior was imitated in the 1942 animated film Bambi. The baby bunny Thumper loved to repeatedly thump his foot on the ground.

Babs and Buster Bunny are also examples of young rabbits similar to the one in our drawing guide. This brother and sister duo starred in the animated television series Tiny Toon Adventures, where they were among the next generation of Looney Tunes stars.
