My bunny eats paper

Hi, I have a 5 month old lionhead bunny and I gave her some newspaper and a phone book to play with. Well she doesn't tear them up but rather shreds them and eats the paper!!! Is this okay????

Paper can pass through fine but only as long as theyre eating hay regularly.. Make sure the bunny buttons are well rounded and not too small and hard. Bunnies love to chew and phone books are one of Acacia's fave toys plus it also helps keep their teeth down

Smudges loves eating paper and cardboard too. Just make sure they eat their hay, and its fine.

My bunnies do the same. When you think about it, the hay they eat is probably only marginally more digestible and nutritional than cardboard or paper anyway.


I make sure they don't eat any paper or cardboard with ink, though. Even though a lot of the ink is supposed to be soy based (so it shouldn't be all that toxic), I'd rather not have them eat it anyway.
