So you know when you are freaking out about being pregnant or not.
Go back to your farm, grab a bunny, inject your urine into it.
What? You don’t do that?

Hi, I’m Danielle Dufault, and you’re watching Animalogic.
Rabbits belong to the order of Lagomorpha,
which has a lot of different species
ranging from cute little pika to large hairs.
Rabbits are found all over the earth, except Antarctica,
but are especially common in North America.
Rabbits are not native to most islands.
How would they get there, swim?
But humans have introduced them to many islands including Australia.
Where they’ve become a major problem
because they breed so quickly and eat so much.
There are actually about a hundred different breeds of the species we called them domestic rabbits.
Ranging from the fluffy angora to the adorable lop eared varieties.
Rabbits breed like, well…rabbits.
An female rabbit can breed for about seven years.
And in those years, she can hypothetically have a litter of about six babies every month.
If you do the math, it becomes frighteningly clear that rabbits could easily take over the world.
A signal female and her descendants could produce over a hundred and eighty four billion rabbits in seven years.
Luckily for us, rabbits are tasty,
and are the preferred food for lots of predators.
and we’d be knee-deep in bunnies.
That actually sounds awesome.
Bugs Bunny outwitted porky pig with snappy conversation and tricks.
Real rabbits use their strong back legs,
big ears and 360-degrees vision to escape predators.
They are also crepuscular,
active at dawn and dusk.
So they’re less visiable to predators.
They usually sleep with their eyes open so they don’t miss anybody creeping up on them at night.
It is tough being tasty succulent prey.
Guys, rabbit are not rodents.
They have completely different teeth patterns
两颗在上方内侧 两颗在底部 就像兔八哥一样
with two incisors on top, two on the the bottom, just like Bugs Bunny.
Rabbits are pretty quiet animals,
which makes sense since they are always trying to escape being dinner.
They do make little humming sounds when they are happy.

The ultimate expression of bunny happiness though is the binky.
如果你见过兔子蹦 你可能会想“天啊撸 发生了什么”
If you’ve ever seen a rabbit binky, you might have wondered what the heck was happening.
The rabbit jumps up in the air and twists in a wacky way.
When we think of happy bunnies dancing is in the forest,
this is what they’d actually be doing.
More of a free-form Moshpit than anything else
brings the size of a AA battery.
They’re still better dancers than me.
Rabbit feet have been used as lucky charms to ward off evil since about 600 BC.
In North America, not just any rabbit’s foot will do.
It has to be the left hind foot of a rabbit killed in the cemetery at the particular stage of the moon.
Some people believe that the superstition originated
because witches were thought to shapeshift into rabbits.
So cutting of the rabbit’s foot would protect the holder from Witchy Voodoo and bring good luck.
Obviously, it didn’t quite work out for the rabbit.
It’s hard to believe today,
不过在四十年代 五十年代 六十年代
but in the 40s, 50s and 60s,
millions of rabbits gave their lives so that women could find out if they were pregnant.
Pregnant women produce human chorionic gonadotropin,
a hormone that indicates the presence of a fertilized egg.
Urine from the women was injected into a female rabbit.
Then, a few days later.
Rabbit was killed in her ovaries examine.
If there was a hCG in the women’s urine,
the ovaries of the rabbit would enlarge.
Because the rabbit follicles will be stimulated and start to mature.
They could actually do the test without killing the rabbit,
but it was easier to kill the animal.
You can still hear people say ‘The rabbit died’
when they are talking about someone being pregnant.
无论她们有没有怀孕 兔子都会在实验后死亡 这真是个悲伤的故事
The sad thing is the rabbit died whether the women was pregnant or not.
What animal do you want we to look into next?
