What is a Moogle?
Moogles are a recurring race in many Final Fantasy titles. They are usually small, fluffy and like to say “Kupo!” a lot. In Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, Moogles live alongside Humes and many have incredible engineering skills. It is said that Moogles built the first airships.
What if the rabbits try to build an airship?
So far these rabbits have not demonstrated the ability to build airships.
How long will the livestream go on for?
The livestream will finish at 12.00pm BST on 11th July, the day Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age releases.
Why are the rabbits sleeping?
If the rabbits are sleeping, it’s probably night time. They live in the UK so if you are in a different time zone, you may catch them snoozing.
Where are the rabbits?
Vauxhall City Farm, London. Vauxhall City Farm specialises in education and therapy animals. All the rabbits are rescue rabbits.

How are you looking after the rabbits?
These rabbits are very friendly and used to interacting with humans. All materials used in the livestream are non-toxic and safe if the rabbits decide to chew on them. Trained farm staff are on hand to ensure the wellbeing of the rabbits and at night they are secured in their hutch to avoid foxes.
