The TRUTH About A Rabbit's Diet

Updated: Sep 29, 2020

No doubt about it, if you’re ready for a surprise, then this post is for you!

Everyone knows what they think rabbits eat -- but is that actually what they eat? In this blog post, we’ll go through a list of food that rabbits don’t actually eat, but it seems like they should!! Prepare to be amazed…


Although it’s ironic that rabbits eat carrots, it’s not true! Rabbits don’t usually snack on root vegetables and fruits. When I gave my rabbits a carrot, they left it alone and ate Dandelion Weeds instead. So, there you have it! They don’t eat carrots!


Rabbits and lettuce; the iconic duo! Well, folks, it turns out, Rabbits and Lettuce is just a Rabbitwood joke! Rabbits don’t actually eat lettuce. In fact, it gives them horrible, icky symptoms… in other words, it’s horrible for their stomach. And we all know what that means.


Although it seems like rabbits eat vegetables, they tend to not eat them. Some of the very unpopular vegetables that rabbits hate are asparagus, leeks, onions, potatoes, rhubarb, squash, and tomatoes.


Have you seen a rabbit nibbling on a flower? Let me rephrase. Have you seen a rabbit nibbling on a flower in a movie? ERRR! No! They don’t eat flowers.


The last food I’m addressing in this blogpost are herbs. Rabbits very rarely eat herbs. Especially basil, mint, oregano, parsley, and tarragon.

Most house-rabbits don’t eat these foods. But who knows? Maybe you’ll find a rabbit so hungry that they’ll dare to eat the foods they “despise”. Check your gardens, mate!
