Well, From my Veterinary school days, I can surely say that Rabbits are NOT 
rodents. They belong to the?order lepidopterae (or Leporidae), while rats 
and mice belong to the?order Rodentia, as do chipmunks, prarie dogs and 
other 'cutsie' rodents?- (and 'flying squirrels'-cute little buggers !) 

Rabbits belong to?Phylum Chortidae, F amily Leporidae - with O ld and N ew W 
orld subtypes. After that - you need a Rabbit expert; of ?which I know there 
are many. 

The brain chemistry of each species is vey unique; for example anesthetic 
response?for a rat vs. a rabbit is quite different. 

My 2 cents!
