Socially Housed Rabbits in Tunnels

Group: Other Animals
Species: Rabbit
Research Areas: Cardiovascular disease

Rabbits in this research facility are socially housed in runs with paper bedding, tunnels, dividers, toys, and treats, providing them with opportunities to hop, dig, play and forage for treats.  The rabbits are identified with non-toxic ear markers that allow caregivers and researchers to track them and their progress on studies.
