Default Animal handling a category for rabbit

Hi All,

Animal handling fits in categories and I have a character that wants animal handling category that includes rabbit.

Rabbit seems too narrow especially since "sit" and "food" and "come home" are pretty much all the tricks they can learn.

What category would you suggest creating that includes bunny?

Maybe Animal Handling (Small Animals). It would cover rodents, lagomorphs and other various small, generally domesticated, herbivores and omnivores.

It's a somewhat obscure term, but I think the various animals of the glires clade are roughly similar enough that I wouldn't object to them being handled by a single skill.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glires

I'd also be happy enough with Animal Handling (Vermin) including rabbits.

Just don't let the guy with ST15 and IQ 8 around the rabbits. They'll probably end up calling it George and petting it a bit too hard.

thanks guys.

In the interest of clarity as having to define glire over and over again may age me before my time I will go with the slightly less realistic "small mammals"

I was floating that way anyway but wanted another opinion and see if I was under thinking it.

How about Quirk: "Thinks he can train bunnies to do tricks?" ;-)

I almost made a fool of myself laughing out loud in a public inappropriate place.
