Why does my rabbit eat its
own poo?

Rabbits produce soft, moist droppings called caecotrophs as well as hard, dry waste pellets. Rabbits eat caecotrophs directly from their bottoms, allowing food to be reingested and provide them with more nutrition.

About us

Founded in Orlando, Florida in 2019, sunshinelops.com was created to share our own experiences with our pet Holland Lop rabbits. In the beginning, it was just Lola, then Max but our love and curiosity for rabbits overwhelmed our home and today we reside with our Holland Lops, numerous Netherland Dwarf rabbits, two Australian Sheppards, two cats and oh, our children too.
