Quick, what’s a baby rabbit called? A baby rabbit is called a “kitten”, or “kit” for short. 🐇 There’s been a regular convention of them growing up around my house and the yard is FILLED with Eastern Cottontail poop. Do you know that rabbits have TWO KINDS of poop?? The first is green and soft, and the rabbits re-eat it, sending it through a second time to digest more thoroughly. The second kind is the re-digested pebbly stuff. Yup, rabbits are coprophagous. 😱 So that first kind of poop is called “cecotrope”, or “night feces”. It’s from fermented food in the rabbit’s cecum, which is part of its digestive tract. The whole mystical-magical process is called “hindgut fermentation”. The cecotropes are soft and rich with nicely absorbable nutrients, and the rabbit eats them again so it can access all the important vitamins, proteins, and other nutrients they hold. I guess it’s akin to that whole cud chewing idea in cattle. 🐄 After this process, the rabbit poops all of its uniformly shaped little fecal pellets—up to a hundred or more a day—directly into my yard.
