 I find it really interesting how some breeds/types of bunnies have such vastly different shaped heads.  Some have long, elongated faces with cute pointy noses, some have very round, bulbous faces, some have super-flat, squished faces.. it's fun to see all the different kinds! .

So, post a pic of your bun's head in profile (that is, looking to the side), so we can see all the different kinds of bunny heads there are out there! .

Oh, and if you want to post what breed, or what breed you think your bun may be, that might be interesting too. .

Here's Zeus!:


 

I'd say Zeus has a pretty flat head.. 

He's the floppiest... he's the loppiest... he's King Zeus, the gentle giant French Lop!

She's the fuzziest... she's the wuzziest... she's Little Hera, the spunky Lionhead!

Great idea! I think it's neat and cute how they are all different as well.

Bindi Loo has the sad looking squishy profile typical of lops. (Sorry not the best pic, only profile one I could find right now )

Olivia has a very long, pointy nose.  When I first got her, I nicknamed her "pointer rabbit". We don't know what breed(s) she is.  I think  her nose looks funny in the second pic

                         

Stormy is in-between. His head curves, like an s shape. He has a very pronounced forehead which seems to be common in Mini Rex's.

Mr. Bunny's head shape is a little like a wild rabbit's - long and uniform. His head has some curves around the eyes. He has relatively small eyes (compared to Ms. Rabbit, at least) and long ears.

Ms. Rabbit's head shape is similar to Mr. Bunny's, except it's slightly more rounded around the eyes and nose. She has huge brown eyes and relatively long ears.

 Great pics LittlePuffyTail!  I love your pointy-nosed bun, so adoreable. .

You mentioned the flat head is a typical lop thing?  I didn't know that!  Your lop's head is definitely similar to Zeus's. 

He's the floppiest... he's the loppiest... he's King Zeus, the gentle giant French Lop!

She's the fuzziest... she's the wuzziest... she's Little Hera, the spunky Lionhead!

Fluffy; Your buns' heads look kind of like an in-between, between the totally flat lop head, and the pointy nose head.  Their heads are elongated, but more rounded and not as pointy.  Cute!

The flat squishy head is very typical of lops, though hollands much more so than minis. Nethies have a similar squishy head shape.

I don't have any pictures on my work computer, but I'll have to find some when I get home. Otto's face is completely flat, while Hannah's is much pointier.

Loving the pics : )

Lops can look flat on the top of the head. Rumball certainly does. It took a bit of getting used to when I first got him as I wasn't used to lops.  The base of his ears has really thick cartilage compared to Jersey. I think he has sort of netherland features about his face but he's 6.6lbs!

  

You might notice Jersey has matching crimps near the top of her ears. Does anyone else's rabbit have those?

  

She can look like a flathead too, when lopped. :p

Jerseygirl, if I had spare money, I'd get a plane ticket to Australia so that I could kidnap your bunnies. Jersey is gorgeous! I laughed when I saw the last pic - I like to push down Mr. Bunny's ears the same way. Sometimes they don't come back up for a few minutes!

Monkey and Smudge TOGETHER! Moose has face shape very typical of Dutch breed I've seen here.

I don't know what it is about ChaCha's ears but they are unique.

@Fluffy, if you bunnapped mine the bunnymoon would definately be over for MrB and MsR. lol

That's alright! I'll always have a little bunnymoon.

Yay!  So we're not really talking about it so as not to jinx it?  

This means there may be lots of Monkey&Smudge-bug pics in the future. We have some time to prepare for exploding heads.
