My rabbit eats his feces Why?

Rabbits make two types of feces: those that are individual hard balls, hard and dry, and then there are those that are clustered, shiny and soft. The latter are called cecotrophs or nocturnal feces. Cecotrophs originate from the blind part of the intestine and begin to make them from the third week of age of the gazapo.

Cecotrophs are rich in vitamins, bacteria necessary for the animal, and therefore it is important that you eat these feces and perform a second digestion of them. This process is called cecotrophy.
