      No, they don't. Cud is a product of ruminants. Ruminants hold
      their food in a chamber of their stomach, and vomit up this stored
      food ("cud") later for more processing. It's an adaptation that
      allows them to eat quickly and then retreat to a hiding spot to
      digest their food, thus minimizing their exposure to predators.

      Rabbits do not eat cud or regurgitated material. Ruminants do
      that, and rabbits are not ruminants. Rabbits eat their shit, which
      still contains a lot of organic material that gets extratced as it
      passes through the gut a second time.

      Shit is not cud. Big difference.

      That's right. Shit and cud are totally different. Rabbits eat shit.
      They do not eat cud.

      No kidding. It doesn't have much science straight. But this is all
      offtopic for this list.
