Mandarins are also known as mandarin oranges and a fruit of a small citrus tree of the same name. They are very similar in appearance to other types of oranges and are eaten usually raw or with salads.
So can rabbits eat mandarins at all?
Let’s take a look and find out more about them. In particular we are interested in their acidic, sugar, calcium, phosphorus, fat, fibre, and sodium content as far as rabbits are concerned.
As you can see mandarins have a hint of fat and calcium, and are quite sweet and have a hint of phosphorus and calcium.
This means that rabbits can eat mandarins but not too much. A few segments a week should be quite sufficient for them but nothing more than that.
They can also eat the mandarin peel which is fine for them to eat.
