Red leaf lettuce a lettuce cultivars that have red leaves and they include “New Red Fire Lettuce”, “Red Sails Lettuce”, “Redina Lettuce”, “Galactic Lettuce”, and the “Benito Lettuce”.
So can rabbits eat red leaf lettuce at all?
Lets take a look at their nutritional data in particular their sugar, calcium, phosphorus, fat, fibre and sodium content?
As you can see red leaf lettuce contains a little phosphorus, a hint of sodium, and calcium however it is very acidic and so is not so good for rabbits to eat. So it is best to avoid as far as bunnies are concerned. They are fine to have a nibble at it, but nothing more than that.
