I bred my mini rex doe with my holland lop buck. Was wondering if theres a nickname to call these hybrids. Just like holland lop lionhead hybrids are called lionhead lops or lionlops. Is there a name for mini rex and holland lop cross bunnies?

    People have crossed the mini rex with the hollarnd lop but I could not find a 'NAME' for the cross.   The ones advertised just say 'Mini Rex and Holland Lop cross'.  Maybe you can come up with a name - there are others out there.  Go to and enter 'mini rex + holland lop'

I have a rabbit but I am not sure of her breed. We think that she is a mini rex but we cannot tell. Any tips? Also she lives in the same hutch with my purebred Netherland Dwarf, Napoleon. We thought she was a Netherland Dwarf before because she could fit in a gerbil ball comfortably. they look identical both are broken blacks with black around their eyes and ears.

    She looks a lot like the rabbit pictured above.

    There really isn't an accurate way for us to determine the breed of your little one.  Could be a Rex but it could be a cross and look like a Rex.  Much depends on size, fur, coloring etc.  If she is a cross - could look like mom or dad or grandparents.

What can I bathe my bunny in? What can I use on him?

    You do not bathe a bunny as they are extremely clean and wash their coat similar to a cat. If needed, you can brush them to remove excess or lose fur.

    take your bunny swimming, try and keep their ears out of water to avoid problems. my 2 new z's love it and my valvetteen rex hav a blast. obviously make sure the lake or water your dipping them in is safe. if u swim in it they will....this will also give them somethin todo .(grooming all afternoon)

Hi Charlie TGIF!!!! Its Marie again I have Snowball the holland lop bunny. I have it running between the kitchen and hall its gated off. He's still pooping all over we had him trained to go in his cage but he does not do it anymore I am not sure if he thinks that this spot is his cage or what its been going on for awhile. We never litter box trained him because he would not go in it. During the day I let him have the run of the house for a couple hours and he loves it he binks (SP). But when he's running around he also poops and pee's where he;s running..l What should I do I am nervous about puting him into the cage at night when we go to bed to retrain him I feel its cruel because the cage is small. Do you have any suggestions??? Thank You so much P.S. He is very spoiled I donnot think he knows he's a bunny I think he think he's one of us LOL!!!!

    Hi Marie, I'm not Charlie, but I have an English Lop (Max) that does the same thing. He gets to stay in his cage when I get tiered of picking up Easter Eggs and wiping up the floor. He doesn't seem to mind, he also has a smaller cage. Have you tried to put several litter boxes out just to see if he will use it. I would even lay out papers because you can roll them up and put it in the trash. I have thought about having Max fixed but didn't know if it would help. I think it could because it looks like he is kind of marking when he does this.

    Thank you so much Erin!

Hi there, My name is Brittney and I am a preschool teacher and one of my co teachers just got a bunny for her classroom. I am concerned that this little guy (Thumber) doesn't get the proper care. He is usually in his cage all the time unless being cleaned. I was wondering if you could give me a detailed list about how to care for this bunny, ways to potty train, diet, play, how long a day he should be out of his cage etc. He is such a lover, and it makes me sad he doesnt get the attention he deserve, therefore i will be taking it on myself. So this info would be soooo greatly appreciated!!! He is about 7 months old. It would also be nice to get info about being around children ways to maybe make it more comfortable for him, the more the better on all the above! :) thanks

    Litter training is pretty easy but needs consistancy.  Having the rabbit stay nights and weekends at school may make it a bit hard.  Normally they will pick favorite spots to go to the bathroom.  When you figure it's spots put a litter box there with some of it's droppings inside the box.  If you want it to learn the box over the spot, place a few litter boxes throughout the room with their droppings in it and they will usually get the hint. 

    They rabbit will need a lot of touching and attention to make it calm when handled.  First the kids will need to be educated and closely monitored.  He will need exercise like any animal, unless the cage is huge will need time to stretch and run.

I had a floppy ear rabbit, it was brown. I gave it water and rabbit food. Most of the time I gave it vegetables, also carrots. It died a few months later because it didn't want to eat any of its food. I always use to take it out in the back yard to walk around. Sometimes it ate the grass. I loved it. His name was Cookie. It was the best animal I ever had until it died. We buried it in the back yard. Well, that is my comment about my rabbit I use to have. The end.

    Where did you get your rabbit? Did he belong to anyone else before you got him?
  • Kayla - 2012-10-18
    You can't give your rabbits just vegetables. they should only be given vegetables once in a while. You MUST avoid lettuce as well.

Hi Charlie Sorry to bother you again its me Marie with Snowball he is starting to poop around the house and not in his cage like we trained him. Over the last few weeks we started training him to come into the living room and have his freedom around the house but now it seems since we did this he is pooping and peeing wherever he wants how can I stop him from doing this he never did it before... Thank you so much have a great day!!!Marie

    Best guess here is you need a litter box in the cage but you also need one outside the cage.  If the bunny is loose - it is not going to want to go back in the cage - like sending a child to his room.  So put one just outside the cage.  Introducing the bunny to the house - you have to let the bunny do that on his own.  You would open the cage door and the bunny would come out and hopefully slowly explore returning as needed to litter and food.  If you pick him up and bring him into the living room - how can he know the way back.  I'd just start over with a litter on the outside of the cage and let him explore on his own.  That's a best guess - though that is how my daughter did it and her bunnies have the run of the house with the cats and dogs and birds.

    I have a flemish gaint rabbit and he is a great pet, and up 2 20lbs. He is 7 months old

    Hi, I am living in Singapore, and have 2 champagne d'argent. Am interested to get one giant flemish. Does the farm where you got your giant, import to Singapore. What is the cost of one?
  • JOHN VERNON - 2012-09-29
    Singapore is not a suitable place for such an animal. It is far to hot with very high humidity and also you would need to have a large property which is not common in singapore. It could be quite inhumane to keep flemish giants in such conditions. Differing opinions sought and welcomed.
