      I have two rabbits one mini lop and one holland lop. The mini lop is a female and she tends to bite the cage all night keeping me up all night. What can I do to stop this behavior? She has food, water, toys and hay in her cage all the time. Let alone she has a xxl dog crate that I turned into a 3 stories for her. Any suggestions will work.

      What is the square footage of the cage (length times width of the bottom level). My girl bites the bars for a little bit once she realizes her pen is closed but then calms down quick and plays with her toys/ chills in her pen. It could be that she doesn’t have enough space because they do need quite a bit. My girl has about 24 square feet for her pen plus lots of out time. How old is she? Younger buns can be quite rambunctious, as they have a ton of energy.

      It can help to pin up a towel or blanket over the side that she’s biting.

      Also, is she getting plenty of exercise? Bunnies are most active at night, so giving her more exercise in the evenings might help too.

      Sometimes, rabbits bite their cages when they want to get out. Exactly how big is the cage? Anything smaller than 16 square feet could be considered small.
