What should I know about caring for jackrabbits?


Answer by  Mary49 (29)

You should not care for a jackrabbit unless you are a qualified wildlife specialist. Jackrabbits are wild animals, not domesticated, and should not be treated as pets. If you find an injured jackrabbit, you should contact your local wildlife rehabilitation service or the animal control office in your town.

Jackrabbits are very strong and fast. They also need plenty of exercise so it would be best to keep them in an open space outside instead of in a cage. They eat a lot and multiply like crazy. They need a little box for their burrow.

Jackrabbits are very difficult to domesticate. You should not try to raise them in cages because it can cause them to become so stressed they won't eat or drink.

Jackrabbits need to be fed and cleaned properly. They need to get the right nutritional substance in their diet. They need enough water and exercise everyday and their cage should get new wood shavings about once every week or so. Their cage should be well cleaned out of excriment daily.

Jackrabbits don't have the temperament of a standard rabbit. They are more easily startled, easily drawn to aggression, and aren't into being held. They are not ideal for children.

Jackrabbits might have the word 'rabbit' in their name but they are actually hares, which means they have taller hind legs and longer ears. Jackrabbits can run incredibly fast, about 40 miles an hour, and can jump up to ten feet.


Answer by  vto (226)

the biggest thing to know about these kinds of rabbits is not to over feed them. If you do it can lead to a fatal intestinal disease. Also, if you ever plan to put it back in the wild then don't keep it to long.
