"Rabbits are Lagomorphs. Different Order from Rodents. Rodents are members of the order Rodentia. Only very distantly related to each other. "The leporids first appeared in the late Eocene...<snip>... Lagomorphs differ from rodents in that the former have four incisors in the upper jaw (not two, as in the Rodentia). Also, lagomorphs are almost strictly herbivorous, unlike rodents, many of which will eat both meat and vegetable matter." "

There was a film a few years back (Never Cry Wolf 1983?) that centered around a
fellow monitoring a pack of wolves. He tried an experiment to evaluate whether a
large mammal could survive on a diet of small rodents.

He tested the theory that wolves could live off of the local rodent supply
by doing so himself.
