Why did Neanderthals become extinct? Scientists have offered a variety of theories, from climate change and cataclysmic volcanic eruptions to interbreeding with modern humans. But a new study puts at least some of the blame on bunnies. Or, to be more specific, on Neanderthals' apparent inability to exploit the "high-biomass prey resource" of rabbits when prehistoric deer and other large prey mammals became scarce on the Iberian Peninsula.
Dr. John Fa of Britain's Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust presented the theory in a study titled "Rabbits and Hominin
