Real Domestic Rabbit Skull - Pathology
A domestic rabbit is any domesticated variety of the species of European rabbit. A male rabbit is known as a buck, a female is a doe, and a young rabbit is a kit or kitten. Rabbits were first exploited by the Romans as sources of food and fur, and have been kept as pets in Western nations since the 19th century. Because they have become invasive in Australia, pet rabbits are banned in the state of Queensland.
