Get to know Clover, a rabbit who lives with Emma Whelan, Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology & Social Anthropology.

(Find information on how to submit your own pet's profile at the bottom of this profile.)

Name: Clover. Like our guinea pigs, Lily and Rose, we named her after a plant that grows in our garden.

Nickname: Bun-bun.

Species/breed: Not sure—she’s a rescue—but a colleague has a Dwarf English Spot mix rabbit and they look very similar.

Age: Almost two.

Fave food: Apples…and clover!

Special tricks: Pooping (mostly) in her litter box; thumping when cranky; evading capture; livening up my boring lecture videos.

Best quality: Gentleness; softness; high cuddle-tolerance.

Social media platform or handle, if available: None, but she has appeared in an SPCA promotional video.
