Number of breeds of rabbit

Easter is almost upon us!

The combination of Easter and the northern hemisphere's spring brought rabbits to mind – we can't stop thinking about what the Easter Bunny might bring us!

While we're waiting, we decided to look into a rabbit-themed map – so we've mapped the global distribution of different rabbit breeds.

The map (above) shows how many different breeds of rabbits you'll find in a number of countries.

If you live in a country like Australia, there's only one breed of rabbit – so you should be able to predict what the Easter Bunny looks like with fairly good accuracy! On the other hand, US residents will have a harder time, with more than 10 breeds in the country.
