Yoda is a thinking rabbit. His buddy Luke is content to just hop about and eat clover when he's outside - hop about and eat pellet food when he's in the hutch - hop and eat, hop and eat.
But if you put Yoda in his hutch, he looks for trouble - most specifically he looks to see if he can figure out how to nibble the cage wire in such a way as to make not just tiny holes - but rather as to make it unravel, 2 foot long piece by 2 foot long piece.
If you make a special trip to the feed store to get a food dish that hooks onto the side of the hutch so he'll stop dumping his pellet food every time you feed him, he'll watch you hook it on for a couple days, and then on the third day, he'll hop over after you hook on the dish, grab the edge of the dish in his mouth, LIFT the dish ever so slightly up into the air to disengage the hooks from the wire, and hop away to the other side of the hutch with the dish held in his mouth, to place it in the back corner where he likes to eat a little first, and then dump the rest.
Yes, this is not a rabbit for those who lack a sense of humor!!!
Anyway, so if you put him in the x-pen that contains Luke perfectly well in the yard, and then you lie a piece of fencing on top in an attempt to discourage jumping, Yoda immediately wonders how he can get around this obstacle and head for greener pastures!!
