Rabbitt in the Poison Ivy

Rabbit in poison ivy

Here is a cute little rabbit sitting among a bunch of poison ivy plants.

Of course, rabbits don't get a rash from poison ivy, and most reports suggest that NO animal other than humans, does get the rash.

Of course, fur does protect the skin from the plant oil, so that might be part of it.

But then goats are famous for eating poison ivy with no ill effects.

Rabbits probably don't eat it simply because it is not as tender and nutritious as the fresh greens they do eat.
