Can rabbits swim or not?

Better than me...

And I swim like a fish...

My 6-year-old is on a swim team...And she can 'butterfly'...

The point is...Rabbits swim REALLY well...They just dislike it an awful lot...

Keep her interested in swimming, at that age probably the "Y". Lots of politics in "Y" swimming, coach, parent on the board etc. My sons started at age 6, One took sectionals in the 100 yard Fly and the other breast stroke. Both turned down college scholarships when they found out it meant 7hrs of practice a day with only 12 credits allowed and back to the same for summer school and another 6 credits. Guess they both wanted a life. Swimming, besides cross country are the most strenuos sports in highschool. You either swim or sink for 5 to 7 miles an evening. Football players were nocking swim team members until invited to try a daily practice. They lasted halfway through a pre-workout warmup. Never heard from those gents the rest of the year. Keep her in swimming. That sport really builds a work ethic, self respect and friendships throughout your conference up thru state meets.

Thanks for the good words...

Unfortunately, there are darn few schools here with swim teams...My Daughter is on a team that is organized through a municiple pool in the closest city which for us is in the next county south...

rabbits cannot swim because they never learned to read or speak english; ergo they could not follow instructions.

I think swimming is international. I know you must be trying to make a point but it escapes me.

I agree with Jim, I was always told that if it can walk, it can swim.

Any animal that walks on all 4 legs can swim. They may not like the water, but once forced into water will try to walk or run and thus "swim". Rabbits dislike getting into water as do racoons, but will if finding it neccessary. Deer will cross or even walk up a river if shallow enough to escape wolves. Seen it happen. To deer water is no problem yet wolves or fox dislike swimming. Survival at any inconvenience probably enters a rabbits mind also.
