1. OH! Too bad they don't make good pets.

Don't they have poisonous glands in their back claws?

2. They do. And some nasty spines on their back legs to inject the venom.

Definitely not pet material.

4. I doubt it. They can be nasty. We've got a cottontail who is almost six...

 

... and he's FINALLY at a point where I don't get slashed all to hell when I cuddle him. He does purr. I didn't know rabbits purred until he joined our family. Well, he/she - penis and two vaginas and I'm not shitting you. We call him "he".

6. He is. He's ejaculated and had periods (bloody mess). Vet confirmed the condition.

 

Yes, he's a hermaphrodite. Usually the organs are stacked, but his are linear - vagina on either side of the penis. It brings a whole new meaning to "go fuck yourself". So far he hasn't gotten himself pregnant. His face is smushed in (compared to his siblings) and he has no fear of humans, dogs, cats, or anything else. FORTUNATELY, the one instinct he DOES have is to groom himself.
