    Is it normal for my yellow rabbit snail to bury itself? Cheers

    Welcome to FishLore!

    The Rabbit Snail has a natural habitat that commonly consists of sandy/silty substrates. They forage similarly to MTS through the substrate for food and will bury themselves for a short period of time. If it continues for more than 24 hours straight, you may want to investigate water parameters. I don't see any listed on your profile, so it is hard to say if they're just taking a dirt nap. :)

    Here is a useful website ALL about Rabbit Snails for your own reference.

    Mine all constantly burrow trying to look for food and then just fall asleep lol I've never seen them burrow for more than a few hours, they'll come back out when they get hungry. Totally typical behavior.
