Do you know the difference between a rabbit and cavy? Don’t let that stop you from exploring the numerous resources available in 4-H.

Rabbit Showing

 Want to teach your friends the difference between a rabbit and a cavy?

What hops like a rabbit and sounds like a rabbit and smells like a rabbit, but isn't a rabbit? A cavy! No matter which you choose, rabbit or cavy, it could be the ideal project for you if you're interested in an animal project but live in an urban area. They're also great for small farms or rural areas where lack of space, facilities or money make it hard to raise larger animals.

Rabbits and cavies let you gain experience in feeding and managing animals for fun, companionship and profit.
