Editorial Reviews

Review

Rabbits: The Animal Answer Guide is the one resource you will need to learn about rabbits' anatomy and physiology, evolutionary history, ecology, behavior, and their relationships with humans.

(Northeastern Naturalist)

As a compendium of the state of knowledge on lagomorphs, Rabbits is unsurpassed, and a worthy addition for all academic libraries. Highly recommended.

(Choice)

The one resource you will need to learn about rabbits' anatomy and physiology, evolutionary history, ecology, behavior, and their relationship with humans.

(PetFocus.com)

I can see it as a stimulating tool for parents to initiate discussion with their children.

(Pat Morris Linnean)

If there's anything you ever wanted to know about rabbits, it's almost certainly in here... Rabbits: The Animal Answer Guide will teach you that rabbits are far more complex than you first thought. Complete with informative photographs, this book will change the way you look at rabbits.

(Pet Focus)

Learn little-known facts about the familiar animals, whose 90 species include several of the world’s most endangered.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book has lots of info, but the copyediting and proofreading were not very careful. Every chapter had typos, missing or extraneous words, etc. Unfortunately, that can reflect on the credibility of the book as a whole. I was most interested in rabbit behavior and physiology (and would have liked reading more on those areas), but all of the chapters were interesting.

This is a DEEP book. I am learning a lot about lagomorphs (rabbits) as I read through this book. I did not know how many species were in the same group with rabbits. As a wildlife rehabber specializing in cottontail rabbits, I am learning a LOT!
