How high can a rabbit jump?

I was watching Pepper playing last night and I was wondering. How high can a rabbit jump.

Pepper can jump at least a foot high

The three I have currently really aren't big jumpers. My netherland dwarf Zeus (RIP) was only 2 lbs but could jump crazy high. I never measured how high, but it was funny that such a little bunny could jump so high. And if he found something he couldn't jump up to, he was an expert climber too. He use to climb up the NIC panels like they where ladders.

But Barnaby, the lionhead, has never been much of a jumper. The two holland lops seem pretty content to stay on the ground for the most part, although Ziggy gets a decent amount of air when he's doing his happy jumps.

Great thread! Our Hoppity has jumped on top of her cage before, which is like 21 inches. But has never jumped over her play yard, which is about 29 inches high. She doesn't usually jump up on things too much when shes running free in the house, she mostly just does her bunny 500 up and down the hallway, then plops herself on the tile floor. I think shes kinda afraid of heights, because sometimes when we clip her nails, we'll let her go on the couch and she doesn't usually jump down on her own.

My little 6 year old Smudge can still clear 3 feet if he REALLY wants to! He has been pretty content though lately... He hasnt jumped the baby gate in front of my door yet LOL!

In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

My bun Trixie jumps over the baby gate that we had out so that she doesn't go upstairs. Needless to say, she goes upstairs now, lol.

I used to have a rabbit that loved to jump high when she was young. She run fast until she was about one foot from the fence, then she would jump straight up in the air, spin, and come down facing another direction, and run off. Then she would do it all over again. She would do it about 6 times in a row. It sure looked funny!

Yes by'!! I didnt think they could clear 2 NIC panels!! Both my pens are constructed 2 high but I have only had a problem last year when Acacia got up on her ledge and jumped over but it was only one she was jumping. Both will only jump up as far as the couch or my bed..
