    What do rabbits do in the winter?

    A:

    Rabbits are very active during the winter, as the weather and the lack of plants means they have to spend much more of their time searching for food. When not searching for food, rabbits spend much of their time in the warmth of their underground shelters, which they usually line with grass, leaves and sticks to help make it more insulated.
