What habitat for his bat?

Even if it can live outdoors, the best habitat for the pet rabbit at home is a cage. The latter should be quite spacious because the rhinoceros is very active thanks to its very powerful hind legs. In particular, its cage should be enhanced with floors that the rabbit loves to dig and descend and a space where it can hide. Its cage must be located away from sources of noise and air currents. The ideal is a piece with a bit of passage like for example the kitchen where the rabbit can always have an eye on his masters and where he does not feel alone.

What food to give to his bat?

The rhinoceros’ digestive system is very sensitive. Fresh foods such as pears, apples, carrots or celery should not be given to the rabbit before the age of 6 months. The foin, its basic food, must be of good quality. The granules are also very good for rattan feeding. They give him all the vitamins and all the minerals he needs.

The babies (between 2 and 6) appear 30 days after mating.
