Welcome to the world of rabbit-slavery...hehe..soon he will have you at his beck & call (if they can speak)....
Your bunny looks like a lion-head..based on that pic you posted..the chubby cheeks & that 'soon to be fringe' below his ears...he looks adorable...my lion head looked like yours when he was a baby...
Don't worry about not knowing how to take care of him...with alot of love & patience (god knows that they do push thier limits), you will soon know how..

I didn't know a thing when I 1st had mine, and still don't know after all these time, but he'll 'teach' you how to..

Sorry i cant help you with info on being neutered as I live in a totally different part of the world, it cost me 70 dollars (after currency conversion) and it's so difficult to find a rabbit-savy vet in my country as people don't really bother much about rabbits, a vet told me that his patients are about 70 dogs to 1 rabbit.. *gasp*

Good luck!

OMG! Your Tofu is absolutely adorable!!! YAY for you opening your home to him and LOVE the new btw! I'm new to BB as well and I adore it here. Everyone is SUPER helpful and they don't treat you like your a goober for asking questions. So seriously ask away! Everyone on here knows their stuff! =)

$340 also seems way ridiculous to me!!! Holy crap. $100 is much better and its a vet you know and trust which is super important! I am getting my Toby neutered in a few months. He's only 14 weeks old so we still have to wait a while. I'm on the hunt for a place to get it done at to. I'm going to take him to the vet I took my other bun to, but I'm not sure she does neutering. I know Spay Houston charges $80 for male rabbits, and it includes a vet examine BEFORE you book the procedure so they can check out the bun. I believe the meds are extra but they said only about $15 or so. I'm sooo happy that it's a reasonable price. Whew!

Usign hay as a litter base as well as food can be fine, as hay doesn't absorb the urine. Just put newspaper under it so it doesn't slosh. It will require changing more frequently though, just reuse the good hay

Welcome : )

I agree with the suggestion he's a little lionhead bunny. Some grow their manes in closer to one year if age and some are called unmanned lionheads. I think the blue eyes come from the Vienna gene. He's pretty darn cute! I'd love to see close up if these blue eyes.

Right now the only way I can catch him to put him in his cage is by rolling his ball by him, wait for him to mount it, then pick him up.

hahaha! That's a novel approach.

Rabbits are classed as Exotics so the vet you have sounds promising. Especially if he's neutered rats and operated on hedgehogs.

i have the same cage exept a little bigger cute rabbit some litter boxes come with directions but basically you put litter in the box not cat litter i would recommend wood pellets spout $5 a bag for fifty pounds then put hay down on top of it

Welcome to BB. Tofu is absolutely gorgeous! Such a cute name for a bun. I adore the pic of him with the little ball.

I definitely see lionhead as well but I'm thinking a mix. I personally see a little bit of a hotot rabbit in there, anyone else? Check out some pictures of some hotot bunnies online and see Maybe a mix of both!

Whatever breed he is, he's super cute! I love those chubby cheeks hehe. Welcome to BB!

I thought he was a lionhead hotot cross as well.  His shape past his head isn't as lionheadly and he has the pretty eye-liner like hotots have.  Also it looks like he has longer fur around his neck (not as much as a mane but the hint of one) so he could be a single maned lionhead cross still waiting for the mane to come in, or the mane will never come because of the cross.  Regardless of what breed he is though - he's such a cutie!

He got neutered today, yay! I'm excited for less hormones and less stray poops. The vet said he was over a year but other than that couldn't tell me an age.
