Rabbits are what’s known as a crepuscular species, which means they are most active during and around dawn and dusk. Rabbits will frequently nap throughout the day and night, so these aren’t the best time to interact with them. If you’re trying to have a play session with your rabbits, but keep finding that they are asleep, it will be a good idea to try and interact with them in the morning or in the evening.
Rabbits are most active at dawn and dusk
There are a few reasons why rabbits are crepuscular. They are constantly looking out for predators, both nocturnal and daytime. Dusk and Dawn are the safest times of day for rabbits to leave their burrows and graze, because the lighting isn’t ideal for either threat. It’s a little too light for nocturnal predators and a little too dark for daytime predators.
