I don't know, this bunny doesn't seem all that cutthroat to me.

If you crop out the raspberries and wait until most of the berry is chewed up, it's like an adorable, fluffy bunny laughing while its mouth is full of the blood of its enemies.

Yeah, somehow this is how I imagine my final moments. The video will be titled "Bunny Eating Pancreas!"

There are like a thousand videos of bunnies eating raspberries on youtube. I, for one, can live with this meme.

Aw, now I want a bunny.
Not really.
No, yes, now I WANT A BUNNY.

I did not expect the Rabbit of Caerbannog to be so cute.

It's a sick crowd here. I just thought the bunny's beautiful eyes were set off wonderfully by its lovely raspberry mouth.

But now all I can think about is blood and death and people eating bunnies. *Shakes fist*

Well, that's no ordinary rabbit. That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

Well now I just feel confused.

We had rabbits when I was a kid living on a farmette in the middle o' nowhere. After Mrs. Bunny (hey I was 7 gimme a break) had her first litter, she just kinda up and decided to eat two of 'em. Little 7yo me was rightly horrified and has looked askance at these so-called cute fluffy bunnies ever since. Beware, deep inside these seemingly innocent herbivores lies the heart of a cannibal!

I *warned* you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you *knew*, didn't you? Oh, it's just a harmless little *bunny*, isn't it?

NorthernLite, they are cute and fun, and can be very affectionate. They also have a voracious appetite for electrical insulation, remote-control buttons, and books. If you get one, make sure you have an appropriate space for it - either a large hutch outside, or a room of its own devoid of wires, books, and furniture you care about. They love to run around, and it's cruel to keep them in a small cage, but resist the urge to let it have the run of the house. Limited, supervised "free" time is safest. If its appetite for exotic stuff is thwarted, it may eat baseboards and door frames. You have been warned.

I'm pretty sure that's how they actually achieved most of the shots in Night of the Lepus.

Alas, small space. And I fear Kitty, who also has an appetite for electrical cords, string, foil, paper, Xmas ornaments, All People Food and the occasional human foot, might also have an appetite for bunnies.

Oh great, and now because this thread took such a horrific turn, I'm imagining a Cage Fight to the Death between KrazyKat & BloodyMouthBunny.

No, yes, now I WANT A BUNNY.


Yeah, having owned a bunny they're more of a pain than you imagine.

Per Kirth Gerson, They also have a voracious appetite for electrical insulation AND HOW! They fricking love to chew electrical cords. And the tips of shoelaces. Ours chewed through the bottom of our couch and took up residence inside it. I had to staple hardware cloth over the bottom.

Not all rabbits like to be petted or held and most actively run from being picked up. Plus they poop and you have to clean out their cage every so often.,

It was cute though, sure.

Pretty lipstick colour there. Too bad it's been tested on animals.

Except they hide them.

If you have a rabbit you will find some of it's poops years after it is gone when you pack up to move and the cute little rabbit ghost will run around you in circles thumping it's incorporeal feet laughing and laughing with its little rabbit grunts of joy.

Where are the bunny-eating raspberries I was promised?

We live out in the country, and we've let one section go completely wild raspberries. This means we have a lot of bunnies. Which means we have hawks and eagles and coyotes. Red of tooth and claw indeed.

So many exciting search terms in the YouTube description!

Bunnies aren't just cute like everybody supposes,
They've got them hoppy legs and twitchy little noses.
And what's with all the carrots?
What do they need such good eyesight for anyway?
Bunnies, bunnies, it must be bunnies!

I had guinea pigs as a kid, and their pellets are also inoffensive, and sort of waxy.

When they said nature's "red in tooth and claw," I rather thought they were talking about something more violent.

It's not the rabbits, it's the urine. Give them a litter tray, change it daily, they don't smell at all.

their poops are probably the most inoffensive of all domesticated potential pet animals though.

And can be placed directly on the garden without composting. Cecotrope pellets, which you'll see rarely ('cos lagomorphs are corophages) are a hell of a lot squishier, though.

I like to think of this video as the bunny finishing the last few bites of Glenn Close's character in Fatal Attraction.

Oddly, none of Bugs Bunny's girlfriends ever wore lipstick that I can tell... but Bugs did when he was in drag.

Now I am picturing hawks and coyotes with adorable raspberry mustaches....

Not to beat a dead horse (or its close relative, the rabbit), but our rabbit was not deterred from eating insulation even after short-circuiting a line through its mouth, tripping the breaker and stunning the bunny. I believe that last phrase is a metaphor for something very off-topic... I had to elevate all the electrical cords, or armor them with plastic spiral-wrap, or both.

WRT cats, ours, despite being a dedicated hunter, respects the rabbit. They play chicken and tag, and the cat likes a game of ambush-from-the-box. I've seen reports that cats and bunnies can even become cuddle-buddies, but ours haven't.

One of our rabbits ate a wooden closet door.
