My rabbits are two brothers, George and Cinnabun, about six months old. They are bonded and love each other and have never fought. However, this morning I noticed George trying to steal a piece of lettuce from Cinnabun. Cinnabun ran away and backed into a corner of the cage, but George kept grabbing the lettuce from Cinnabun's mouth. Cinnabun is very laid back and did not try to attack George, but I was shocked by this behavior and am fearing that this could lead to fighting. Has anyone had this happen? It wasn't like it was the last piece of lettuce, they had an entire hay rack full of lettuce, but George kept yanking the lettuce out of Cinnabun's mouth. George has always been VERY obsessed with food, but I have never seen him take some right out of his brother's mouth. Typically they enjoy sharing food, but it was clear to me that Cinnabun was not trying to share the lettuce piece with George.
