Rabbits have an etiquette when being greeted, and can go into a strop if you don't do it right. It can be likened to a handshake, with rabbits just as likely as humans to give pathetic, limp versions or forceful ones.

How to deal with a naughty bunny

Sat, 12 Sep 2009 04:09PM

I saw a question on Yahoo! Answers that upset me a bit. The person had hit their new rabbits because they had scratched them, and was now asking if they held grudges. Poor buns :( Anyway, here's my guide to humanely (or should I say rabbitely) dealing with a naughty bunny.

Rabbits love chewing cables

Wed, 19 Aug 2009 03:52PM

The consensus is that rabbits chew wires because they look like roots. They will snip them in half to get them out the way as if they were burrowing. But this doesn't explain why they like just chewing on wires that are not in their way. The Internet tells me rabbits might be able to hear the frequency of the electricity pulsing through the cables and this annoys them but I couldn't find any other articles backing this up.

What do rabbits see?

Sat, 01 Aug 2009 12:39PM

Often the rabbits get startled when I enter the kitchen and only when I greet them do they know who I am. This is because rabbits have quite bad vision, and usually tell what things are by their smell, noise and shape. They have a very narrow area where they can focus on and judge distance well even though they can see almost 360degrees. They have a 10degree blind spot in front of their noses. Not to freak out a dozing Pixel, I usually talk when I enter the kitchen so he knows its me, and continue to talk as I bend down to pat him.  Nybble seems more trusting of anything that moves and doesn't generally freak out!

New website!

I have redesigned lowmanio.co.uk to be more bloggy, and hopefully I shall actually keep up with my blog this time. I got a little over enthusiastic with blog posts as you can see...I've already blogged 6 times! The topics I will blog about are in the categories to your right. I am starting a masters in Forensics Informatics in September, so will post anything interesting I learn here. I'm also really interested in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and general art and design, and computers in general! Hobbies wise, I own two rabbits called Pixel and Nybble and I love to cook. Both of these will get mentions - hopefully not at the same time (although rabbit meat is delicious). I have also moved my bunny blog which used to live at http://rabbits.lowmanio.co.uk to here.

Why do rabbits binky?

Wed, 29 Jul 2009 05:10PM

With 1 comment

To people who have never seen a rabbit binky before, it is like the bunny has had some sort of fit. They range from the rabbit jumping and twisting in the air, to sudden mini flicks and turns and head shakes. What's funny is that they don't have great spacial awareness, so often binky head first into walls or look incredibly confused about the new direction they are facing. To see an example, I found a YouTube video of a rabbit doing an insane binky
