What is a female rabbit called?


Answer by  Jess35 (445)

A female rabbit is called a Doe. Many people associate a "Doe" with a deer, however the definition of doe actually involves the female of the deer, antelope, goats, and rabbits.

As with deer, an adult female rabbit is a doe, and an adult male is a buck. Young rabbits, however, are known as kits, not fawns.

We raised rabbits both when I was a kid and as an adult. Funny that they are named the same as the deer family in that males are called bucks, females,does.

Most people do not know that a female rabbit has a different name than that of a male. While most people refer to both female and male rabbits as simply rabbits, a female rabbit is in fact called a doe.
