Grab a black liner, and use this to draw a large pointed triangle shape – with the ends unconnected for now – in the top right hand corner of your page. From the bottom left hand corner of the “triangle”, bring across a slightly curved line, heading out to the left.

Now, repeat this shape on the left hand side, with the right hand line emerging from the side of the curve you just drew. Bring the left hand edge of this shape down, so it is roughly level with the one on the other side. These will be the ears of your bunny.

Next, add curved, jagged lines coming down from the bottom of each of the ears, filming almost a circle shape. At the bottom of these lines, add another jagged line, almost like an inverted “V”, to connect the two side lines, and descend down slightly.

Now, add another semi-circle line, again, made up of jagged edges, just beneath the shape you just drew.

Underneath the rabbit, add two shapes, one on either side, consisting of a straight line ending in three bumps. These will be the rabbit’s feet.

Use the gray pencil to add another shape, emulating the first, inside the tail. Then, use the same color to gently shade in the whole tail.

Now, the only thing left to do is figure out what your bunny is looking at – why are you seeing him from behind? The rest is up to your imagination!

Bunnies may appear to be small, simple creatures, and popular pets, but they have a number of fascinating attributes and facts which can be useful to fans of the animals, and owners alike.

These small mammals are part of the order Lagomorha, and the family Leporida, and are found in almost every corner of the world, with the exception of Antactica. As a rule, wild bunnies tend to live in few specific habitats, typically grasslands, wetlands, woods and forests, deserts and meadows, and over 50% of the world rabbit population can be found across North America. In some locations, bunnies are the native animals; this is the case in southwestern Europe, the islands of Japan, regions in southeast Asia, South America – here, they were introduced as part of the Great American Interchange – and some parts of Africa and Sumatra.

Bunnies have two main, distinctive features: their long floppy ears, and their strong, powerful hind legs, and both of these are used to detect and escape from predators. As a rule, bunnies will have ears of around 4 inches long, while their legs will have five toes on their front paws, and four toes on the hind feet. In addition, bunnies have strong nails and teeth, and these are useful for defending themselves, as well as digging burrows and warrens for shelter and safety – perfect for escaping and hiding from predators!
