do you know about rabbit,rat,hamster and others?

hmm do you know that after rabbit eat it will sh!t(1st time from the food),the rabbit hasn't take any nutrient yet!!
what to do? rabbit will eat its faeces and then it only gain nutrient.otherwise it will die from lack of nutrient.
for example,it eat carrot,the plant's cellulose is only break down after it went through rabbit's stomach(a place where rabbit can absorb nutrient) so that rabbit unable to take any nutrient yet from the 1st diet.it have to eat its faeces(cellulose is broke down,nutrient can be easily absorb).
its same for hamster or rat...
people always ask,"why my hamster always died easily??".
its probably the cage's problem otherwise don't hang it,get a nice cage and cage's location for your rabbits,hamsters pet!!
its something about science ^^"

Where did you get this information? I raised rabbits for years and always had them in cages with wire bottoms so the feces could fall through. These rabbits were healthy and multiplied. These rabbits had no chance to eat their feces so I am pretty sure your information is incorrect.

When I was younger I had a rat, which soon turned to four.

And before i could have one, I told my mother i would always clean it's cage.
Ever since i had the rat/s, their cage was always cleaned, and like sky305 they didn't really have a chance to eat their feces...

The rats lasted 4 years before they died.

hmm...its just some knowledge i gain from biology class.
was it your cage hanging there or just place on ground?
perhaps it still could eat its faeces if its place on ground.
if its hanging then there something wrong about it...
i'm pretty confident about my information which was already confirmed by scientists.
maybe later i will let people know somemore about herbivore, such as cows,goats and others.

Coprophagy is what it's called.
Lots of animals will do it.
Mommy dogs do it while nursing a litter, so nutrients aren't wasted.
Horses may do it out of boredom.
Rabbits have two different types of poops each day.
The hard pellet kind that falls thru the cage wire mesh floor,
and a softer mucus covered kind called "night" feces or cecotrophs
which gets eaten as soon as it's produced and doesn't fall to the cage floor.
Supposedly a vitamin B deficiency developes if they are denied it.

And a snopes search came up empty.

hmm...that's a detail information jwellsy could give ^^
o.o also i'm only a form 4 student and studying form 4 biology, so there won't be any more detail information for now.
any detail information could add here ^^" all are welcome :>
thanks for the information Idea

So do you any of you guys eat your own feces? I mean, I know I always feel like I'm wasting nutrients every time I flush. Maybe we should take a cue from the rabbits of the world. Now we just need chefs to work on finding some ways to make it taste good, then we'd all be set. Mmmmm crap.

lol don't compare rabbits with us,humans
even though both are animals...human are the highest class of animal...don't even need to consume our own faeces -.-
