Rabbits and Radiators

Did you know that a rabbit's long ears do more than just help them hear?

Rabbits do have excellent hearing. They can detect a wide range of sounds and even rotate their ears together or independently to help them determine the direction of a sound. But did you know that their ears do more than just listen?

A rabbit’s ears also help keep them cool on a hot day! Rabbits don’t sweat like we do- they release heat through their ears instead. When a rabbit gets hot, the blood flow to their long ears increases and, just like a radiator in your car, the large surface area helps dissipates the extra heat in the blood which helps cool the engine… or in this case, the rabbit!
