Since bunnies need to injest their moms ceces (sp?) to prime their gi tract for proper digestion,6those taken away from mom will need help. Their life spans will be shortened by several years if they don't injest the proper bacteria from mim. So here is where yopu can get some: http://www.rabbitmart...

No worries here. Each species has it's own myco (including us) A rat's version can't infect a squirrel and vica versa. As far as I could tell,there, was no exchange of anything between them.
