K is for Kittens

In modern times, a baby rabbit is called a kit or kitten. Centuries ago, the species were "coneys" and the young were "rabbits".

L is for Lagomorph

rabbits are members of the taxonomic order Lagomorph which includes Leporidae (hares and rabbits).

L is also for Language- rabbits do communicate with one another so it's best to have two rabbits so that they can communicate in the same language.

M is for Malocclusion

Malocclusion is misalignment in the teeth and is one of the most common afflictions of rabbits :(

Nose? lol

I guess I'm going to have to go with Ophthalmic!

Ophthalmic is relating to the eye. A study in the 1970s concluded that rabbits have limited colour vision- while humans can detect "red" "green" and "blue" areas of the colour spectrum (from which we get combinations of colours), it is believed that rabbits can tell the difference between "blue" and "green".

I would imagine that they are able to tell blue from green, as they would need to be able to see the difference between certain plants and berries which might look similar in shape but different in colour.
I think they have the same colour vision as us (including red).

I just tried to think of something beginning with O and then googled it for some kind of related fact lol. According to two different sites (one usually considered to be quite reputable), rabbits lack the receptors necessary for red spectrum vision.
