I just have to comment! That bunny that is in the picture is a Himi Netherland Dwarf not a Himalayan rabbit!

I am looking for a Himalayan rabbit to add to our family and finding it very difficult to locate a breeder. My daughter and I had one we loved very much but he unexpectedly and suddenly passed away after a surgery last year. If anyone knows a breeder in the Eastern, PA (Reading, Harrisburg, Allentown and thereabouts) or even within 2- 2 1/2 hours from the area please let me know! My email is, thank you.

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.

    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 don't know how to tell how old they are - no idea but if you go to and enter sexing a rabbit, there are images and descriptions of how you can determine the male from the female.

Hi. I want a himalayan as a pet and was just wondering if they have to eat anything different from lops or mini rex's (I have both).

    Nope, you wouldn't have to change the diet from the other two you have.  Have fun.

I was introduced to two very sweet and beautiful Hym rabbits last night. They had very perculiar legs and feet, long and strong but slender, feet and toes, ideal for running and fighting. Their eyes were bright red, and rather bulbous, so be careful, they are vulnerable. And their coat soft and lovely, white with dark chocolate points, rather light a siamese cat. All in all a very strikingly beautiful creature, which reminded me of a Hare with colour, rather than a rabbit.

I've had two Himalayan's for years, though they are very cute one is very aggressive and food possessive. I would say their temperament varies so be careful, my husband can't get close to them without the one growling and stomping at him.

    Is the rabbit neutered? If it isn't, that could be the problem. Getting your rabbits neutered drops their hormone levels a lot and can make them less aggressive. And if that doesn't work, try separating the rabbits. Being near another rabbit can also cause them to be aggressive. Hope this helps.

    Most rabbits do get possessive with their food. If they are the same gender, that would happen a lot. Also, when they growl and stamp, it could just mean they really like you. It's a sign of "ownership" for them. My holland lops do that too.

    If you had the rabbits neutered or spay then they would be completely different because as the other person said it drops there hormone levels and also crosses out a few health issues they can get for example testicular cancer. Remember rabbits also need vaccinations against econucoli and VHD. I have two male rabbits that are both neutered and are the most friendliest rabbits ever!!

I have a Himalayan bunny and he is the most friendly, playful, sweet, CUDDLY bunny! He is my baby. Although people say they are the most friendly and I believe that, but truth is every bunny is different. They can be mean, aggressive and some friendly and sweet. Don't rely on Internet and if you really want to find the perfect one spend time with some at the pound. Just my advice. I had no intention on getting a year old white bunny. I wanted a baby, but I saw him at the corner of my eye and I fell in love! He's a big bunny, probably a rare size for a himalayan but he's the best. Good luck to everyone with their bunnies!
