True or False? Rabbits make good Easter gifts. (Answer to Pop Quiz) |
Giving any live animal as an Easter gift is a bad idea - especially rabbits. Contrary to Eastertime hype, rabbits and small children are not a good match. The natural exuberance and rambunctiousness of even the gentlest toddler are stressful for the sensitive rabbit. Rabbits are not "low-maintenance" pets. They have a lifespan of 10 years and require as much work as a dog or cat.
