hmmm, i thought he was playing

I found this good site on rabbits and i got to the sexuality part. Beau runs circles around my feet. I always thought we were playing a game. Males are all alike, no matter the species. thankfully he has never mounted.

Famous for their fecundity, a doe rabbit is sexually mature at three-and-a-half months, the male at four months. Gestation period is only about 30 days. The doe averages 5 - 6 kits per litter. Sexually she operates by "reflex ovulation" (does not ovulate until after intercourse). The incidence of uterine cancer is very high if the doe is not spayed (around 5 - 6 months is best). Bucks reach sexual maturity a month or so after puberty. Bucks will run circles around your foot and may even try to mount your ankle until neutered.
