The rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) belongs to the Leporidae family, like the hare. In nature, rabbits live in groups, in underground tunnel systems they excavate. The structure and size of this animal vary greatly depending on the breed: it starts, in fact, from the Dutch dwarf rabbit that weighs less than a kilogram and reaches the giant breeds, (such as the Flemish giant), which weigh up at eight. The digestive system of the rabbit is characterized by a particular physiological characteristic called ciecotrophy, which determines a process of formation and rearing of a type of particular stool, called soft faeces. Thanks to this the rabbit, which is a monogastric, is able to "digest by bacterial fermentation" fibrous foods as it happens in polygastrics.
