A genetic defect can cause rabbits to have a strange acrobatics, so to speak.
A bipedal rabbit, as such, would fit a science fiction story, even though it’s real cases.
a According to Gizmodo Report A team of geneticists and biologists sought to answer the secret of bunnies walking on two (front) legs. The first such case was recognized in 1935 in a Paris suburb. As studies have found, the bizarre acrobatics of rabbits is the result of a genetic mutation that “lies” in the animals’ genetic code for generations.
These animals usually walk on all fours, but when they want to run, they immediately stand on their front feet and move around. This disorder is due to the ability of rabbits to jump, as individuals with legs cannot do this.
They will not be able to live in the wild for long, but the unusual movement will not cause them any pain. These studies help not only in understanding special rabbits, but also to better understand communication in the human spinal cord.
