Carrots are bad for rabbits, RSPCA says
The sight of Bugs Bunny chewing a carrot is among the best–known images in cartoon history, but root vegetables are in fact bad for rabbits.
Many pet owners interpret the character’s favourite food too literally and risk giving their rabbits tooth decay and other health problems, says the RSPCA.
The charity said owners were mistakenly using carrots and other salad foodstuffs for rabbits’ staple meals, adding that just 8 per cent of owners knew what to feed them
TIL. (Although, Bugs Bunny only has 2 teeth, so maybe that should be an indication….)
