Can Rabbits See In the Dark?

If you have a rabbit you may see them up and about in the dark at night time. This may seem quite strange especially if they don’t have any light to draw upon to see where they are going. This begs the question, can rabbits see in the dark at all?

Well the thing is that rabbits can see very well in the dark. They don’t have the same problems with it that we do.

Their eyes adjust well to the darkness and as prey animals they are built to be able to move around at night and evade their predators.

They also use their keen sense of smell to make their way around at night and this helps them to sense where they are going and what’s around them.
