Can Rabbits Eat Ants?

The most populous species in the world is ants. Did you know that there are more than 12,000 different species of ants all over the world?

Ants live in large groups and colonies because they are social insects.

Some colonies depending on the species consist of millions of ants.

Sometimes ants will accidentally find their way into rabbit holes and homes and therefore accidentally get eaten by bunnies.

So can rabbits eat ants?

The good thing is that if the ant isn’t poisonous then it will not cause any harm to a rabbit. However poisonous ants will obviously cause harm to a rabbit if eaten.

Usually the rule of thumb is the more colorful the ant the more harmful and dangerous it can be.

Therefore ideally rabbits should not eat ants at all because they could be harmful to their health.
