the dinner party

  • Added:  4 months ago
  • Rabbits having dinner. Over the years, my wild desert cottontail population has grown to about 50 individuals. They know they have plenty to eat and drink here and are relatively safe from predators. Although they are fairly tame, they aren't quite up for hug...yet. They eat Ben's leftover alfalfa and range cubes as well as a nightly serving of rabbit chow and a couple of carrots. This meal was served on a luncheon plate from my mothers set of Haviland china that I inherited. Limoges Chrysanthemum pattern - Schleiger #86.

    So funny, John! I hadn't realized rabbits communicate with their ears, as do dogs and cats. Learned something new.

    They jump at each other and jump away in fear, but they have no horns and no sharp claws, so what do they fear? Do they bite each other? Beautiful video and setting.... you were kind to feed the creatures.

      I think they just try to intimidate each other by seeing who can be cuter.

    This was amazing, magical, and absolutely hilarious.
    Who knew that mere bunnies could be so entertaining?
    The music coinciding with the final spectacular leap was perfect timing.
    As a fellow Hare, I heartily approve of this video.

    I've never seen rabbits jump like that before. Any idea on what kind of rabbit that is?

      "Against small predators or other desert cottontails, it will defend itself by slapping with a front paw and nudging; usually preceded by a hop straight upwards as high as two feet when threatened or taken by surprise."

    I love your videos. Keep em coming. Is that you water tanks in the background and how much rain have you got this year?

    • TheFieldLab

      Those are two 3000 gallon tanks and one 1550 gallon tank...all full. I pump creek water into them after big storms. The rest of my tanks are roof catchment. My total storage capacity from all my tanks is 22,000 gallons and it only takes 7 inches of rain per year to fill them. Our average is 7 to 9 inches per year. Last year's rain total was the most I have seen since I have been here... 12 3/8". The least for a year was only 3.82" back in 2011.
