I'm mainly curious. I have noticed that Lolli likes to have her lips open. Usually her teeth are close but her lips are open. Sometimes her mouth is too but mainly it's just her lips. When I took her in for a wellness check in May, the vet checked her teeth and said they were perfect. Also, there is no drooling or anything. So she is very healthy aside from having to keep an eye on her ears for infections.
I know other animals use their mouths to sense smells and chemicals in the air. But the only animal that comes to mind right now is tigers. lol Does anyone else know if rabbits do the same thing or is this just a little quirk she has? I am not worried at all. Just find it a bit funny and am curious. (She also moves her mouth and smacks a lot which I notice when I'm snuggling with her.)
