The rabbit is a very popular animal because of its docile and lovable nature. Let's learn more about the various sounds and movements of rabbits.


1. Cooing means the rabbit is very dissatisfied and angry. If you don't stop upsetting it, you may be bitten.

2. A rabbit's scream is similar to a mouse's, and like humans, usually represents fear or pain. If you suddenly hear a rabbit scream, the owner should immediately pay attention to the possibility that the rabbit has been injured.

3. A gentle grinding of teeth means that the rabbit is content and happy. If you reach out and touch the rabbit's chin at this time, you can feel the molars rubbing together. At this time, the rabbit's eyes are usually half open.

4. Loud teeth grinding means that the rabbit is in pain and it is best to take the rabbit to the veterinarian.

5. Hissing is a warning to fight back, mainly to warn the other rabbit not to come over or it will attack.

6. The call of estrus is low, deep, and regular. The male rabbit will usually make this call when chasing the female rabbit.


1. When a rabbit reaches adulthood, the rabbit may engage in circling behavior. Circling is a courtship behavior, sometimes accompanied by a grunting sound.

Circling also means that the rabbit is trying to get attention or asking for food.

2. When rabbits are very happy, they will jump in place, slightly recoil in mid-air, and sometimes bob their heads while jumping.

They love to express their happiness and enjoyment by jumping.

3. Some rabbits do not like people touching their things.

When the owner cleans the cage and changes the food dish, the rabbit may jump at it. This means that it does not like it and lunging is a sign of attack.

4. When a rabbit stands up on all fours with its toes as well, it means a warning or anger.

They will hold this action until the danger has passed, which can last from a few seconds to a few minutes.

5. Rabbits sleep on their sides and stretch out their legs because they feel safe. If the owner does not disturb it, the rabbit may fall asleep quickly.

6. When a rabbit tries to keep its body as low as possible, it means that it is nervous and feels that there is danger approaching.

7. Crouching down means something different from lowering oneself. When crouching down, the rabbit's muscles are relaxed, which is a sign of feeling relaxed.

8. In the language of rabbit behavior, licking your hand means thank you. If your rabbit licks your hand, it means it wants to say thank you!

9. Female rabbits will exhibit hair-pulling behavior the day before they are due to give birth. They will pluck hair on their chest and the side of their feet and use the plucked hair to build a nest to keep their young warm.

Pseudopregnant rabbits may also engage in hair-pulling.
