The Language of Lagomorphs
Here are more places to read about rabbit behavior, training, and other behavioral issues, including other people's conclusions about what various signals mean. Since I first started this guide in 1999 I've been happy to see quite a few other Web pages about rabbit communication appearing. This is great! It's been pretty amazing to see how many people, even those who live with rabbits, are outright shocked at just how communicative they really are once you learn to notice. The contrast between this reality and the popular misconception that rabbits "just sit there" could not be greater.
Note: I will ONLY add links here to educational articles and sites that specifically and extensively address topics in rabbit behavior and training. For other rabbit sites (including personal pages), you can look elsewhere. Please don't ask me to add a link to your Web page or site if it doesn't fit this very limited set of topics.
You might want to look over the Guest Book for this site,
and the Questions and Answers page associated with it.
Also, I've provided a page with my notes on behaviors that I believe might be signals but which I'm not quite sure about.
These books are particularly good for insights into rabbit behavior and understanding some specific signals used for communication. Some I haven't read yet and am relaying the opinions of other folks.
