Do rabbits eat tomato plants? Thank you for your reply.
Hardiness Zone: 6a

The leaves and stems are toxic to most animals including rabbits however it is not unheard of where a plant will be knocked down and the tomatoes (red or green) scruffed up. (I have also had experience with the neighbor's dog doing this.)
Deer have eaten my tomatos, but a likely culprit could be the tomato hornworm. They are green and blend in with the vines so they are difficult to see. They are larger than a caterpillar and have a rhinoceros horn on their back ends. Hornworms can polish of an entire tomato plant. Planting Marigolds around your tomato plants will help keep them away.
