Can a rabbit eat zucchini?
Zucchini is safe for your pet rabbit. However, this does not imply that you should feed it to your pet all day long. Your rabbit needs a few things to form their everyday diet and these are hay or fresh grass, good quality rabbit pellets and clean water.
Yes, rabbits can eat blackberries but only in moderation. Regard them only as a treat. Very important! Feed blackberries only when they are well ripened but not wilted.
- The pumpkin peel, flesh, and insides (remember to remove the seeds) contain phosphorus, beta-carotene, other vitamins, and minerals but also a high amount of sugar. This means that rabbits can eat pumpkin but in reasonable quantities, only as a treat, as they can get stomach aches.
- Rabbits don't naturally eat root vegetables. Wash the beetroot skin thoroughly before you cut it into very small pieces to your rabbit. You can feed the skin, too. The red color of the beet can stain your rabbit's fur so it's better to give it from your hand or from a bowl.

The main part of a rabbit's diet should be unlimited amounts of fresh hay (preferably Timothy or Meadow Hay), grass, and plenty of clean water available.
- Because rabbits cannot vomit and they can choke on watermelon pips, be careful to clean watermelon seeds before feeding your rabbit. Yes, watermelon rinds are a great treat, too. The rind of a watermelon contains increased amounts of citrulline amino acid than the red part does. It has more fibers and less sugar.
- Myth 6: Rabbits love to be picked up and cuddled and do not scratch or bite. Reality: Although some rabbits tolerate handling quite well, many do not like to be picked up and carried. If rabbits are mishandled they will learn to nip to protect themselves.
- - Rabbits graze, naturally eating grass/other plants for long periods, mainly at dawn and dusk. - Rabbits' digestive systems need grass and/or hay to function properly. Hay and/or grass as they're much more important than commercial rabbit pellets ('nuggets').
