why do rabbits have powerful hind legs

\"\"

Rabbits are prey animals, and their only real defense against predation is their hind legs: rabbits run really, really fast. Unless caught off-guard, rabbits ca
n out-run many animals: that\’s what their powerful hind legs are for. If they are caught off-guard, rabbits can execute amazing acrobatic twists in mid-air so they can change direction and run away from the predator: their powerful hind legs help with that, too.

Lastly, when rabbits fight one another (usually, two males fighting for a female), they can hurt each other a little with their teeth, but really it\’s the powerful hind legs that are their weapons: rabbits disembowel each other!! The problem is, rabbits have such strong hind legs, that if you pick them up or handle them wrong, and they panic and kick into the air, they can break their own backs!
