Image Troff document Thymus and spleen of immature rabbit
This juvenile wild rabbit was killed by a buzzard. It was in good bodily condition. There were claw injuries to the chest and abdomen. The duodenum was torn. Post-mortem examination also shows the normal position and size of the spleen in an immature rabbit. It also shows the size of the thymus before regression. Although the thymus is reputed to persist into adulthood in rabbits, it is much more prominent in young animals.

Image JPEG image Urinary tract
As in other species, rabbit kidneys are retroperitoneal and are situated on either side of the aorta and vena cava. The kidneys have a reddish brown colour, with a smooth surface and a simple structure. The size of the kidneys varies with the size of the rabbit, but they are approximately 3cm long, 2cm wide and 10 cm thick. The ureters can be seen in this image between the hilus of the kidney and the thin walled bladder.
