My house bunny, a New Zealand White, LOVES apples. They are by far her favorite treat. I've taught her to stand up and beg for a chunk of apple and she takes it and runs away and eats it in delight. Every time I have a new guest, they see the bunny and think it's cute that I have a house bunny, so I do the apple trick for them. Every single time, every time, they say in astonishment, "Rabbits can eat apples?!?!?!" as if I just fed her something bizarre. Every time I say, "Sure, she loves them." Is there something I'm missing here? I mean, I realize these people obviously don't own rabbits, but why such the shock at apples? I can even list other fruit and veggies that she'll eat and they don't care about that. It's APPLES that shock them. Is there anything out there I don't know about with bunnies eating apples? I just don't get the on-going shock from guests.
