How are rabbits adapted to their habitat?

Answer

Rabbits have many different adaptation skills that allow them to fit well into their environment. The rabbit's long ears have a unique outer shape called pinna, which enables them to detect faint sounds directly and accurately. Their eyes are positioned high up on the sides of their head, and their flexible neck allows them to see at almost 360 degrees, which makes it easier for them to detect predators.

Aside from their long ears and greater field of vision, the rabbits' fur changes color depending on the climate and their geographical location. Most rabbits can molt and change their fur's color according to the season. Arctic rabbits have snowy white fur to blend with the white background of winter and change their fur color to a reddish brown in autumn. European rabbits blend with the color of the ground as well.

The rabbits' strong and flexible legs allow them to run up to 16 meters per second and change direction quickly. They also reproduce relatively fast and are capable of reproducing year-round. A female rabbit can produce four to eight offspring at one time. The rabbit's fast reproduction rate is considered an advantage to the species because it allows the offspring to evolve faster than any other species.
