I've heard that rabbits are nocturnal, but the vet told me they're not - that they need a full 24 hour night/day cycle just like people. I've been keeping parrots for many years and we all get up about 5am here. Birds and bunny go to bed around 8pm. Is this normal? He makes the occasional chewing on the cage and shredding of the newspaper noises at odd times during the night. During the day Coco has full run of the house when I'm home to supervise, and has several spots that he spends long naps. Is this all normal? Also, I uploaded some cute pix of Coco (in my profile) and am testing the photo 'insert' feature here!
