Social hierarchies in rabbits are not so unlike what you would find in a period drama. These social machinations are an ingenious way to give the next generation a genetic advantage. The fittest animals become dominant and produce by far the most offspring, while the risks of inbreeding are neatly sidestepped by having the boys leave home while the girls mostly stay.
