Find a Question:
I live in Tampa Florida, and I want to have an outdoor rabbit hutch. Is it too hot for that?
I just moved here so I’m uncertain about the temperature.
Answer by Lilah
It depends on the weather. A rabbit is a tiny delacate animal so is would be easier for a rabbit to get over heated when a dog or cat might be able to be outsidew
Answer by catx
Rabbits are temperate animals, they thrive in cooler temperatures so yep, Tampa is going to be too hot for buns. They can easily get heatstroke in temperatures over 80-85F. Mine are far more active in winter than summer (I’m in the UK).

Yes it gets too hot during the summer here if they dont have anything to help keep them cooled down. A way to help keep an outdoor rabbit cool is to freeze water bottles and put them next to your rabbit. I kept my rabbits outside in our patio (in Florida also) and we ended up putting up a ceiling fan for them. Make sure your rabbit always has cool, fresh water at all times to drink. Try to keep them out of the direct sunlight. They can easily over heat. Talk to your rabbits vet to get more ideas for keeping your rabbits cool:).
