    Hormones affect different rabbits to different degrees. They can cause a rabbit to become aggressive, lunging, biting, spraying urine.

    Knowing and understanding bunny body language can also help. They rarely bite without giving plenty of warning signs -- you just need to learn to recognize those signs.
