Rabbits are one of the world's most prominent animals. The creatures can live in a variety of geographies and also in a number of different types of habitats. Rabbits call the woodlands and deserts home. They can also be found living in mountains, grasslands, forests and meadows. Rabbits can even be found in extremely frigid conditions.
