Practical Science in Douglas Community School!


In April of this year two rabbits were bought by Mr O’Mahony. The two
rabbit’s names are *Einstein* who is male and *Pythagoras* who is female.
Third year students took turns minding them during the summer. In September
it was discovered that Pythagoras was pregnant. Rabbits are pregnant for
thirty two days and this period is called gestation.

The rabbit had seven babies. One died and the others are alive and well. There was one white
rabbit, two black rabbits and three grey rabbits. Peter O’Sullivan in first
year is minding Einstein at the moment. Mr Gould and fourth years made an
area for them and they now live in the prefabs.
Aaron Hererra is pictured with two of the rabbits.
