So can rabbits eat green leaf lettuce, lets take a look here and find out more here.
In particular we’re interested in its fat, fibre, sugar, sodium, phosphorus, and acidic content.
As you can see green leaf lettuce contains quite a bit of phosphorus, calcium, but a lot acidic content.
This means that unlike you see in films and other media, rabbits cant eat green leaf lettuce in abundance. In fact they can only have a nibble of it as it is too acidic in its nature for them to consume too much of it.
It is a food that is best avoided to save the rabbit getting too ill.
