Why is my rabbit so friendly towards me, but afraid of new people?
Rabbits think they're still in the wild, basically. Unlike (most) dogs, they don't have a built-in friendliness towards humans. Besides, why should they? Some people shoot rabbits.
Evolution has provided them with withdrawal as a survival mechanism when any persons smell, appearance or general vibe has not been associated with safety. Rabbits never evolved a natural relationship with people, and so, it must be learned.
Rabbits are actually quite smart. The reason that your pets is friendly toward you is because your rabbit recognizes you. And it does not recognize "new" people.
Just like a kid, they have to learn to trust the new people that they meet.
Did you know that you can litter box train or paper train your rabbit as well? Oh yea, they are smart.
maybe because he already knew you..and try to get your attention...
but he don't want to take any risk for new people...
hehe...i think he smart enough ...LOL..!!!
Probably because she isnt use to those people and only feels comfortable around you because she knows you. She might feel vunerable and threatened by these other people

Why is my rabbit swaying back and forth?He seems to have always done this, and he is definitely not shaking or frightened. But he just sits in his cage and sways at times. Why is that?

Rabbit meat - do you see it as a acceptable thing to eat, or does it gross you out?Assuming you eat other meats, would you eat and enjoy rabbit in a dish?

What animal are you afraid of the most?What animal or insect are you terrified of? I am terrified of chimpanzees. After Travis the Chimp destroyed that woman's face, I've been shaking in my boots ever since!
