Rabbits content

The Rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) was introduced into Britain in the 12th century. It was not until the 19th century that they were in such numbers that they became a problem, causing damage to crops, young trees and gardens.

They are now widespread in habitats which provide suitable grass or other vegetation for grazing and well drained ground for burrowing. They will also live under sheds, amongst rubble and in piles of dead tree roots and branches.
