All animals develop and adapt in a variety of ways to continue their particular species. Some animals are fast, some are fierce, some have special housing that keeps them safe. Rabbits are really good at breeding, somewhere back in time the Great Big DNA Rabbit said "If everyone wants to eat us, we'll show them, we will breed so fast that they'll choke if try to eat us all, so ha, ha, ha" or something like that. And so rabbits can produce a new litter every 28 days.
The charming family you see here was born to a mother who was still nursing three week old kits. The father, who had been neutered three weeks before, jumped into the mom's play pen for literally one minute. Female rabbits are "Inspired Ovulators"; all they need is to be around a male and their eggs are ready for action. Lucky for these little bundles of bunniness they will be adopted quickly; handled from birth and cuter than buttons they will make someone wonderful companions for 12 to 15 years.
