I found this online rabbit survey on Krempel's website being run by UC Davis if you want to fill it out at work to pass the time:

I was filling it out, and realized...Hey, I did this a while back.   It is interesting and I am sure it will be helpful to their research, and what they find out will eventually be used in someway to benefit rabbits, so we all benefit doing the survey.

I filled it out.  I am not sure what they are getting at with the survey, some of it seemed like they were punishing bunnies for being rabbits.  Like has your bunny ever nipped or growled is aggressive behavior.  Sometimes a nip is just "Hey you are in my way".  They also chase, mount, nip, etc. with each other all the time, it isn't necessarily aggressive (this was in the aggressive toward other rabbits section.)  Also, their section on litterbox habits "Does your rabbit ever defecate outside of the litterbox".  Marking poops, anyone?

i think they are just trying to get a general consencus on how most rabbits behave, rather than relying on personal anecdotes found on most rabbit information websites. the results could actually paint a different picture about rabbit behavior on some measures. of course, the sample would probably be biased anyways because most people who are willing to fill this out are more rabbit savy than the average rabbit owner.
