Many years ago, I thought that one of my other rabbits had worms. As I saw her leave a pile of droppings, I noticed a few small white squiggly things among the droppings. I started to panic, sure that they were worms. Then I noticed that the little worms weren't squirming any more. I looked more closely at them and realized what they were. I had spilled some bird seed a day or two before and obviously didn't get it all up. Toby must have eaten some seeds and they quickly germinated inside her moist, manure filled intestinal tract. What I thought was worms was instead tiny seedlings that were moving since they were alive, but they died and stopped moving shortly after she expelled them. Upon close inspection, I could see the tiny seeds at the end of the sprouts.

One of my cats had a very difficult case of worms to treat.  She had just about every type of worm imaginable, including the lung worms (coughed them up--super gross)!  She was pregnant when I found her so she went into worm remission.  Babies were dewormed as was she after they were of age.  She still had worms.  We worked up to being on Panacur for almost 6 mos.  Super gross!  Oddly enough Panacur was what we used at one point for Jessica's (rabbit) head tilt.  It is a horse dewormer that tends to be VERY effective.  It tends to taste super gross...I guess horses aren't picky, so that's why it's not usually a first line tx in small animals. 

PS your toby looks just like my tobey (I don't have a picture up)....but it kills me they look exactly alike!
