Interesting Fact:

Have you ever seen a rabbit eating its own poop? As strange or disgusting as it may sound, this is actually healthy for the rabbit!

Rabbits produce two types of droppings and they are very different. The one most often seen is the fecal dropping. These are the hard round ones that are seen in the dropping trays. The rabbits do not eat these.

The other type of dropping is known as a cecotrope. They actually resemble a small cluster of grapes. Unlike fecal droppings these droppings are soft.

Cecotropes are produced in the cecum which is a part of the rabbits digestive system. Inside the cecum are bacterias that are essential nutrients to the rabbit. It is believed that the cecotropes can protect the rabbit from harmful pathogens. Your rabbit will eat them as they are leaving its body.
