Insects are the largest group in the animal kingdom.
It is estimated that there is over one million insect species in the world.
They live in every possible environment that is found.
Insects do important jobs for us such as pollinating crops, decomposing organic matter, helping to cure diseases but are also capable of spreading diseases and damaging plants and other structures.
Examples of insects include caterpillars, millipedes, ants, spiders, mosquitoes, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and cockroaches.
Can Rabbits eat insects?
Well, they could do if they wanted to but the truth is that they are not keen on insects or anything that moves as Food.
They are herbivores and so insects are not the type of food that they are normally attracted to. They are more keen on food that is plant matter and has been grown.
Rabbits are also prey animals. They are not interested in catching their own food like some other animals are, nor do they have the capabilities of doing so.
They are more likely to be preyed upon by animals that do like catching things!
So if you have an insect in your rabbit’s enclosure, they won’t be bothered about eating it. They are more likely to ignore it or just be annoyed by it!
