10 Things to Know About Our Campus Rabbits

Campus Rabbit
You've seen them - they sit in bushes, jump out when you least expect them,  and bounce around like they own the place; they are the U of A rabbits. Here are few things you may (or may not) have know about them.

At the moment, they’re white

Eventually (and hopefully this isn’t a distant “eventually”) they’ll be brown

Sometimes they look like they have spots (either white with brown or brown with white)

I believe that they are actually hares (but am sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong)

They like to sit under trees

They like to have staring contests with the students and staff who eat their lunch in quad during the summer

They don’t like it when you get close to them – so back off

They do reproduce, which means that there are baby bunnies on campus *squeal* BUT, if you spot one, leave it alone. Do NOT approach a baby bunny, even if it looks like it’s been abandoned. It will only be abandoned if you get too close to it.

Unfortunately, the campus rabbits do not cluck like chickens.

They also refrain from handing out chocolatey eggs.
