Would "Bunnies are sitting together" (without "the") be a correct translation?

Does Finnish distinguish between progressive and perfect aspects. For this sentence I said, "The bunnies sit together" and it was wrong. Another sentence with the same grammar I answered, "The bunnies are wanting to eat" and it was wrong.

It seems random.

In general, and in this instance, both work. So if you report these kinds of answers not being accepted (by using the flag) the volunteer contributor team can add those as correct alternative answers.

The bunnies sit together would imply a regular practice, but in the context of the given sentence, it's also correct. Ideally you'd probably want to say "Puput yleensä istuvat yhdessä to say that's it's their usual behaviour.
