Can Rabbits Swim ?
The short answer to this question is ‘yes, rabbits can swim, but they would rather not’. This article will help explain what we mean.
Although bunnies can survive in the water for a short while, they find it a stressful experience. So, we should avoid putting our rabbits in water.
On a hot summer’s day, you may have been tempted to put your bunny in the paddling pool. Perhaps with the good intention of cooling him down. However, although bunnies will stay afloat, they will paddle frantically and expend large amounts of energy. This is not really swimming. More surviving. No bunny has ever got in the water just for enjoyment, even on the hottest day.
