I recently came across a post with one of Dr. Krepels' many articles; in it, she walks through the elements of applicable numbers (for example: how long bunnies can live, how many babies they can have per litter, how often they can have a litter) and selects some parameters for the assumptions of the math problem. Conservative assumptions.
You can check out the full explanation, but the bottom line is that after 7 years, the 2 (read: two) bunnies you start with have the reproductive capabilities to end up with almost 95 BILLION - that's BILLION with a "B" - rabbits.
And that's why your bunnies should be math impaired and you should adopt rabbits from your local rescue shelter.
|Yes, they are cute.|
But there are plenty to go around and
you can adopt them from your local rescue shelter.
