Some of the things limes can be used to make include the famous key lime pie, fruit drinks and other various desserts.

There are many different species of limes including: Key lime, Persian lime, kaffir lime and desert lime.

So can rabbits eat limes safely at all?

No, they are not recommended for rabbits to eat at all because they have a lot of sugar and acidic content.

In addition limes do not have any nutritional value (source) for rabbits and therefore aren’t ideal for their health.

It should be safe for a rabbit to nibble on a lime by accident or once or twice but you shouldn’t go out of your way to feed them limes.

Additionally it is not likely that rabbits will enjoy limes anyways because of the sour taste.
