Part of the archive's Junior Biology series, this study of the rabbit is aided by diagrammatic footage.
This film shows the behaviour of the rabbit in natural surroundings. It explains how rabbits are distributed over the world, how they feed, burrow, breed and defend themselves. There are diagrams of the female reproductive organs and of the embryos, and shots of the young at different stages.
