The Honeycomb is a rather large burrow inside the Watership Down Warren which Hazel and his group of rabbits called home after a harrowing journey after the destruction of their old warren. Its name was given by the roots holding it up looking like a honeycomb.

The Honeycomb is given the same look in both miniseries, TV series and the original book, but who dug the burrow varies. In the miniseries Strawberry, who is portrayed as female, is the one who dug almost the whole burrow because does dig, not bucks. But in the book Fiver suggested that the bucks dig because it would be a while before they got any does.
