Rabbits were built to dig, they have sturdy nails and extremely efficient front paws that allow them to scratch away at the ground for long amounts of time. Rabbits love digging, it is what they’ve evolved to do. In the wild rabbits will need a warren in order to hide from predators. Rabbit warrens have many different chambers inside of them with several different entrances and exits.
Domestic rabbits usually have runs and tunnels to substitute their need for digging burrows
From time-to-time, if you watch them carefully, you’ll see one of your rabbits in a full digging stance. To shovel away as much earth as possible in a short amount of time, rabbits will stand in front of their chosen spot, plant their legs wide apart and scrape at the earth beneath them.
