A Vauxhall Corsa driver was amazed in Nottingham recently when a pet rabbit emerged from her car engine when it was taken to a local garage.
This is Nottingham reports that Anita Smith took her vehicle to the garage because it was suffering problems with its heating.
However, when mechanics at the garage took a closer inspection they discovered the animal curled up in the engine.
It is believed the rabbit could have been there for a few days and despite it being there as Ms Smith completed her routine drives to and from work, it was found to be uninjured.
Ms Smith told the publication: "I was in shock. When they undid the screws and the guard at the front this black-and-white rabbit came out."
The rabbit, called Tallulah, was found to belong to her two-year-old neighbour.
Back in 2002, it was reported that a rabbit survived a 75-mile car journey between Portsmouth and Poole in Dorset after making itself comfortable within a car’s engine.
