Me and my 9 year old brother both just got 2 minilops from our cousins in august 2010! They are sisters, and we love them dearly. They are both almost 7 months old and they are sooo ornery! But I think that that's why we love them! Maggie (my bunny) is black and white. She is the more outgoing, freespirited, orneryest, rabbit ever! Fluke( my brothers bunny ) is more sweet and shy, but yet very mysterious! They both love to play hide and go seek! They are both very good at it too!

Hey everybody, off topic, but at the moment I own a New Zealand white named bianca, also nicknamed Mctwisp, that lives in a cage that is about
3 feet in length and 18in in width. I don't know how much longer she has but I was thinking when the time comes to get a mini lop (: I have a few questions though... Could I have two females in that size cage? And also is there a lop eared rabbit smaller than the mini? (I'm loving the lop ears lol)
Please please write back :3

I have a 7 year old Mini Lop. He is one of our family pets and gets along very well with our boxer! They like to cuddle. He does however HATE his cage and has not been in it in a few years...he prefers to run loose in our porch and is litter trained. He is extremely friendly and my three boys love to pet him. He has quite the personality and becomes a big suck if you bribe him with a piece of banana :) Not sure how many more years we will have with him but have enjoyed every day so far!

I have a Mini Lop called Lulu and she is so adorable. At first we had her inside but just today we moved her outside in a huge rabbit hutch. We have a dog as well and when Lulu first came home with us the dog circled her like a shark circled a boat. We tied the dog up. And moved Lulu inside. She was born in August and now is November so she is 3 months old and we got her last month. But do you know if Mini Lops like chewing wood? Lulu chews her hutch all the time!

Gregory, also known as Sir Gregory of MiniLop, has been employed for a little over four years now as an Emotional Support Service Animal. He was prescribed to me as part of the treatment of Bipolar Disorder. He knows a variety of commands such as COME, NO, STAY, HOME, DINNER, DOWN, UP, and GO. He is leash and harness trained, travels very well, litter trained, polite, and friendly. However, he's still a bunny. He gets into everything and has completely stolen my heart. He's as playful and attention demanding as a puppy, yet as clean and independent as a cat. He's about 4 1/2 years old now, and I look forward to many years together yet. A bunny is perfectly suited for the work of a Service Animal, and at the same time, perfectly suited to the job of the family pet. I highly recommend a lop!

    How can I find out how to train my bunny like this? She's an adorable, affectionate, and very well mannered 8 month old mini lop. Please give me your advice. That is absolutely amazing!

I have a mini lop she is around 1 yr old. I got her 6 months ago. She is very loving and affectionate. Every day when I come home I let her out of her cage and she jumps up on the couch with me and gives me kisses all over my face. At first she was chewing on things and even peed on my couch but I got her fixed and now she is great. She is much easier to care for than a dog and much more affectionate than a cat. In my opinion she is the perfect pet. I keep her in the house in a cage when Im not home and let her run the house when I am home.

Hello there, My Wife and I are avid animal lovers, Currently we have 5 guinea Pigs, and 2 Adorable rabbits.

The rabbits are both male and Female and we would like to breed them with intentions of keeping their litter for our own family.
The male rabbit is a broken Rex, age unknown and is basically our family dog, He sits and watched TV with us, He likes to dance with his stuffed "frog" animals over other Rabbit stuffed toys.
The Female is a Mini Lop rabbit and is 1 Year of age.
We want to breed the two and accepted the responsibility of breeding and being able to take care of them.
My Wife and I were curious if these 2 types of breeds can be bred with each other and what We kind of rabbits we would expect that the would re-produce with their breeds one being a mini lop and one a broken rex?

I would appreciate all feedback if possible.
Thank you!

    I have been breeding giant rabbits for some time now ... You need to be careful here, it sounds like your doe is smaller than the buck which could present problems for the doe carrying large babies and maybe having difficulty delivering them. The young will be a mix or the two most likely rather than some of each. If I were you I would get them checked out be a local rabbit expert before you start. All the best with them! x

    It needs more intention first go in its cage just sit there so it acknowledges that you are there. Secondly offer it food and place your hand near it then stroke it. When it is comfortable with this pick it up but stay in its hutch then take it out. When it is comfortable with you holding it introduce it to other people the same way you introduced yourself. During this process if it gets uncomfortable offer it some thing it likes eg. food, toys. After this if you have any other Rodent pets maybe introducing them might stop him being lonely which means it needs less handling so when you can't handle it, it will be occupied. I hope my advice was helpful " )

    Hey I like these rabbits.

    Hi Fig,
    Hope your lop is settling down a bit. All buns need time to adjust to their new homes. If it still won't let anyone hold it, don't despair. Many rabbits, some would say most, don't like being held. But they do love being pet. Try sitting on the floor with your little friend and letting it come to you. It took over a year for our bun to let us pet him! He is now 7 1/2 years old. He still loves to be pet, but he has never liked being held. Good luck with your bunny!

    I hope your rabbit is adjusting well. I have Mini Lop and he also does not care to be held, but he loves to be petted. I'd work with him. He might surprise you.
