European Rabbit

Scientific Name: Oryctolagus cuniculus
Conservation Status: Least concern
Natural Location: Southern Europe

The European Rabbit can be found throughout southern Europe. Its numbers are declining due mainly to destruction of their natural habitat and over hunting. To retain this species efforts have been made to introduce them to many other places throughout the world with varying degrees of success.

The European Rabbit is certainly one of the more common rabbits found as household pets. They are relatively easy to train even to the point where they can be left to roam free throughout a house just like a cat or dog. They can also be trained to use a litter box which furthers their appeal as pets.
