What's the difference between the hotot rabbit and the Netherland dwarf they look a lot a like

    A good indication is to look at the eyes. The eyes of the Dwarf Hotot look like they are wearing makeup. The eyes are surrounded with a thin band of black fur, known as 'eyebands' by rabbit judges. They are usually all white in body color, which helps make the eyebands stand out., though brown and black are accepted colors as well.  On Netherland Dwarf rabbits these eyebands are not found, and these rabbits also commonly found in a couple dozen different body colors.

Do rabbits bite? What type rabbits are the best to be handled as pets?

    Yes rabbits can bite. Especially if they are not handled regularly from the time they are babies. If you get a baby rabbit and handle him often he will more than likely grow up to be docile and friendly and you should have few, if any, problems with your rabbit biting. This is true of all rabbits, however some breeds are better for beginners and children because they don't get as large and sometimes have more gentle personalities. Some of these include the Mini-Lop Rabbit, the American Fuzzy Lop Rabbit, and the Dutch Rabbit.

Why are they described as small breeds? They are huge compared to Dwarf Hotot, polish and netherland dwarfs, they are small breeds. Mine is huge and keeps growing and growing yet she's not even 4months! Mine will definately be NOT be small...she is the most gentle and docile creature though,love her to bits!!

    These guys have the best personalities and are great pets. They are considered small as usually just 2 1/2 to 4 pounds. Maybe you got a big one. Just love him and enjoy.
  • Liz Guinivan - 2011-06-23
    I agree, I love her to bits! Damn mine is definately huge. I am pretty definate she is purebred but I will have to look up some more rabbit breeds to see if maybe she is crossbred.

    You could have a Californian instead. They have the same markings but get 8-10lbs.

I am so relieved to see these comments! I had bunnies growing up, never knew the breed. I realize reading up that they were white New Zealands. I just talked to a rabbitry who said they don't recommend this breed for pets because they are aggressive. And they are bred for meat and fur! I took her word for it. But, when I looked them up and realized what they were- I thought- my bunnies were New Zealands and they were adorable, wonderful pets! I loved them. They let me hold them, they fell asleep on my lap. The only reason I may not go with them as I'm looking for one now for my kids first bunny- is I think I may not be able to give a bigger bunny as good of a life if they need more room for exercise. So, a smaller breed may enjoy a better quality of life at our home.

Help! I've got a nz male rabbit who is just barely three months old and has taken to spraying! It is marking its territory in the house too so I have not allowed him inside ever since! He is the only rabbit. I never knew a rabbit could mature so quickly. Does anyone have this problem or any solutions/suggestions please, as I do not want to get rid of him.

    A male rabbit is going to spray unless you have him neutered. Better for the rabbit to have him neutered if he is to be a pet. They live longer too.

    Get him fixed. My New Zeland did the same around 3 months of age. I got him fixed at a local Vet (it was hard to find a Vet that would fix a bunny in my area and do it for a reasonable price, so I suggest you call around to get all the pricing information you can! At least males are cheaper to fix, anywhere!) I paid $57 for the procedure. I dropped him off at 8am and he was ready to come home by 12:30pm, so it is a fairy quick and easy process. My bunny, Bun-Bun, is now 10 months old and has totally stopped spraying. Bun-Bun is an indoor bunny with free rain to the entire house all day long, although we cage him at night time (so he wont eat all our cords and molding). We also have 3 indoor cats. My Vet told me that my bunny probably began to spray because of the cats. So, if you have other animals or are around other animals where your bunny can smell them on you that might be what started the problem. Rabbits are fully grown at 12 weeks (3 months) of age though, so this really isnt all that early.
