Correspondingly, what temperature is too cold for rabbits?
From the general consensus of what I've heard and read, a rabbit cannot tolerate temperatures below freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit). It seems to be for outdoor rabbits where maybe protection from wind/snow might not be available.
One may also ask, what temperature does a baby bunny need to be in? A nest of newborn rabbits should be about 100 degrees F. Mom will only nurse the kits 1–2 times a day. The rest of the time they huddle together for warmth in their fur-lined nest. Young rabbits do best at 65–75 degrees F.
Subsequently, one may also ask, can baby bunnies survive the cold?
Rabbits are equipped to withstand even below freezing temperatures as long as two things are assured – they are kept out of the wind, and can stay dry at all times. With those two precautions, these animals can thrive in very cold weather.
Is my rabbit cold?
When rabbits are cold, their ears may be cold to the touch (sort of like when our hands or feet are cold) and they will lay more wtih their feet tucked under them than sprawled out. They may be a little less active if they are cold as well (none of these automatically mean the rabbit is cold, but they can be hints).
