My friend said my Bun has a double chin! I said "no you dunce! That's a dewlap!!!" (Remember when I first got her and freaked out because I didn't know what it was either and called it her beard? lol)

Momo's baby-lap.  I have little doubt that it will grow!  When she eats carrot, her dewlap turns orange

It's just a flap of skin that hangs below the chin on some female bunnies.  I've heard that when pregnant, the female will pull fur from that area to make her nest.

Dewlaps are mostly on female rabbits so that it provides another place from which to pull fur for a nest! Also, that extra fat helps during pregnancy and nursing.

Plus, they're funny and CUTE!

Meadow's started to grow when she was about 6 months old, but since she was spayed right at 7 months, it stopped (and actually shrunk back...)

I don't know... is she spayed yet, Lizzie? Once it gets a certain size, it stays, or shrinks a little bit. You'll see them a lot in girls who were spayed when they were older (like babybunsmum's Pinky) and of course in unspayed females.

(To be honest, I was happy when Meadow's disappeared. I really don't like how they look. And as a mini rex, it was very, very noticeable on her b/c she's so small...)

Yeah, at first I had no clue what a dewlap was. When I looked it up, I found out it's just a place females pull fur from to nest when they're pregnant.
 
Is it possible for a male to have a dewlap? I'm pretty sure there's no need for one, just wondering.

No I'm pretty sure males don't get them... there's no need for them to have a dewlap since the boys aren't the ones making the nest... Leroy's never have one and he wasn't neutered until he was a year and a few months old at the shelter.

Our first bun, Trixie, had a pretty large dewlap. She would actually trip over it from time to time.

I dont 'care for the really really large dewlaps either.    Ruby doesnt' seem to have one.   Just a bunch of lionhead hair there.

Fat males get little dewlaps

Yes Ruperts is cute

Cute pics!

Olivia had a "rupert-ish" dewlap when we first brought her home as she was unspayed and overweight but it's pretty much gone now. My bf called it her "turtleneck".

Great thread and pictures!! As for males having these....well I sort of think Rumball has a dewlap that wraps around his entire body. Very noticable when he is loafing. And obviously Rupert has proved that bucks can have them too. A beerlap perhaps?
Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.

Nova had one after she started to put on weight. I realize now that she was soooooo thin when I got her, and if she hadn't been pregnant she would have looked like she was starving. She should have looked more like this when she was pregnant, but she kept her dewlap for about 6-8 months after her pregnancy and weight gain. I think the spay might have gotten rid of it. If Eclipse gets one, well then I know she is fat! The first two pics are of Nova with her lap, and a more recent one now that she lost it.

Depends on how chubby I suppose. If your bun really is a boy, and has a huge dewlap, it may be time to change his diet a bit. How sure are you that its a boy?

well if he's a boy you'll be able to see his testicles after 3 years. if they arent obvious when he's on his back then he's a she!

Male bunnies might get a small one if they are overweight (like the pic K&K posted of Rupert) but it's not going to be the "full pillow" like Sunny, Pinky, Marshmallow, and some of the other girls have who are either unspayed or were spayed later in life.

How big is your bunny's dewlap? Has she been seen by a vet for a general check-up at any point while you had her? Have you had plans to neuter?

It looks very simalar to the white rabbit on the first page posted by babybunsmum .No,i can not afford check ups .Yes i am in fact looking for a place to get an appointment and see if the price of checkups lowered or highered .It might be that he is a she but I will find out today.Will a unfixed male bunny have a bigger chance of having a big dewlap?I feel like a bad bunny mama

No, you're not! I don't think altering makes a difference whether a male will have an enlarged dewlap or not since it's not hormone related.
