Full Answer

Owning an albino rabbit is almost the same as owning an ordinary rabbit. It needs the same food and general care, but caution must be taken when giving the rabbit outside time. Due to the lack of pigment in its eyes and skin, the rabbit should be given a place to escape the sun. Lack of protection can lead to a sunburn, and the bright light can hurt its eyes.
