Sharing burrows
« on: November 06, 2018, 05:50:40 PM »
Here's something I've been thinking about recently.

The rabbits at Watership Down probably share burrows with others.  I highly doubt any of them would sleep alone, but who would be together?

The most obvious possibility are couples.  Hazel, Primrose and the kittens would share a burrow, and so would, after the end of the series, Bigwig and Spartina, and Blackberry and Campion.  Also, the odds are that Hazel and Fiver probably would have shared a burrow early on, before Hazel and Primrose mated.

But there are still lots of rabbits who aren't in couples, but would probably still sleep together.

What does everyone think?

Although Hawkbit had Clover, I do not think he stopped sharing the burrow with Dandelion x3
I love Watership Down!
Everything is fine =) (?)
