So i have this bunny,, hehe,
and he is soo cute.
when i got him, he was itty bitty...
Well hes 6 months old and almost bigger than my bigest bunny, who is 6 years...
For those who hasnt read my intro, Furbie is a Fuzzy lop (i think he resembles a mini lop)
But i just wanted to know, for anyone who has one, how big will he get.. im not worried about how big he is going to get, he'll always have a home, but i just want to know how big hes getting so i know how big of a condo he's going to need..
Also i want to know if theres any medical issues that are comon in these breeds (ive never had a lop so i dont know much about the ears and whatnot..)
I have two lops and haven't seen any differences in health over other rabbits. Some people do experience ear infections, but neither of mine have had that problem. Others report teeth problems, but that's due to the face shape which they share with other small breeds, so it's not just a lop thing.
My holland reached his full weight by 5/6 months.
Our current boy, Toby, is a holland lop. He's in the 4 lb range. He's VERY furry & sometimes needs help w/ his bottom b/c his hair gets so long. Our beloved Chewbacca was a mini lop and she was nearly 8 lbs. Her face was much darker than Toby's, but both are extremely fast runners. Though they look very funny when they run b/c they are so fuzzy. Chewbacca was a major chewer, which I hear is common in minis, though she had an amazing personality & was the ultimate in fearlessness. Toby is more tentative than Chewy, guess b/c he's smaller & is bonded w/ a neurotic netherland. I believe you should watch their ears b/c they can get cruddy on the tips for hanging on the floor. We've had significant health probs w/ Toby, he's earned EVERY PENNY of his insurance (corneal ulcer & sebatious adentitis). I have also found w/ both increased cecals, he can't have treats as often as the netherland & same was w/ Chewy.
Enjoy your bun, he's ADORABLE!
