  1. I had no idea that rabbits that are domesticated don’t open their eyes until they are 2-weeks-old. This is interesting to me, because I wouldn’t have thought that there would be much of a difference between those that are domesticated and those that are wild. When it comes to wild rabbits, how long does it take for their eyes to open? http://treasurevalleyvet.com/
