- Pretty much throughout the rabbit chapter, it often states (very clearly), that rabbits do not bite. They will kick if they feel threatened, but apparently in the 70s at least, rabbits don't use their teeth to cause bodily harm. This is not true anymore, and I'm doubtful that it ever was. My house rabbit can prove that to you. She's such a stinker. Rabbits bite just as much as they scratch - if they feel threatened, or scared, or want your attention, or even by accident if they are just trying to groom you.
- "Rabbits enjoy a treat of bread soaked in milk. They also like peanuts." (60). Rabbits also like carpet, cake, and foam flip-flops (at least my naughty Elsie does), but that doesn't mean we should feed it to them like it's healthy and should be part of their daily diet! Some breeders do feed bread. Most feeds have everything in it that bread would have, so that's fine with me. But soaked in milk?! That doesn't even make any sense. Any nut and corn product can cause digestive issues and is never recommended in a rabbit's diet.
There's a lot more falsity in the book that I won't dig into right now. It's a funny book, at least the rabbit chapter!
