Filmed in the Mojave Desert near Inyokern, CA. This just goes to prove that wild rabbits are just as cute as pet rabbits!
I was walking around the desert near Inyokern, California one morning and was fortunate enough to film this rabbit. This is what we believe to be a desert cottontail on a clear sunny morning in March. He's pretty relaxed and not really concerned with our presence. The wild rabbits seem to thrive in the Mojave Desert where this video was filmed, they are everywhere! Although I'm not aware of anyone keeping them as pets, they still have that amazing rabbit cuteness and besides, seeing them outside in their natural habitat is just as satisfying.
Rabbits are a very popular pet for children and adults alike. They are relatively inexpensive to keep, easy to house and feed, and can live for over 10 years if well taken care of. Rabbits also tend to be hardy little animals and don't easily contract diseases.
It is a common misconception that rabbits are rodents -which they are not! Rabbits actually belong to their own order called Lagomorpha.
