Rabbit (European)

Rabbit droppings 2 500x500

Rabbit droppings, separate.

Rabbit pellets have a slightly oval shape and a pointed end.  The pellets are generally around 5 mm in diameter, but those of large adult males (bucks) can be up to 10 mm wide.  Bucks can make large piles of droppings, called a buck-heap. Rabbit droppings tend to be dark brown to black in colour.
