WHY are some animals born blind?

Cats and dogs give birth to several babies at once that are not fully matured. If nature allowed the babies to mature in their mother’s belly, it would become so enormous that the poor mother might die.

Interestingly, rabbits and bunnies, despite their many similarities, are born completely different. Rabbits are not only born blind, but also deaf. They also have no fur on them. Naturally, at first they are completely dependent on their mother.

Things go a little bit overboard with rabbits: the female pregnancy lasts a few weeks longer, but in a couple of days the cubs are not only able to get away from their mother, but also try some solid, “grown up” food.
