Bunny rabbits are more than just the Easter holiday's grand ambassador. They actually accomplish so much more than that!

Bunnies offer something so much sweeter than candy. Research shows that just being in the presence of a bunny can reduce the level of the stress hormone cortesol in your body. Rabbits have a significant calming effect on humans.

Studies show that holding or petting a rabbit for as little as three minutes can ease anxiety.
