As you can see Clementines contain a hint of phosphorus, calcium, quite a bit of acidic content, and are quite sweet.

This means that rabbits can eat clementines but only a few segments a week at the most as they are too sweet to have any more than that. Otherwise they will cause bunnies stomach ache.
