Pandora has been with us for a year now and has been skittish and nervous around people.  She loves treats and will come running if you shake them, but besides that really steers clear of people.  I often sit on the floor and talk to her,  but generally her first instinct is to run and hide under the chair.  I generally try to sneak a pet when she's eating her morning pellets or veggies. My other two bunnies really enjoy being pet and brushed and I think they truly trust me.

I often try to pet Pandora, but all of a sudden she decided I  was allowed to pet her last week!  It was all or nothing I guess, since now she's fine sitting there for 10 minutes while I give her  pets.  I'm so happy!   Yaa!!  So, if you have a shy bunny, be patient and persistant since they really can come out of their shell.

here are a few recent pics of Pandora (grey and white) with Viktor (black)

I've had two lionheads since for about 3 months now and they're very skittish and nervous too...something set one of them off yesterday and he was running around like crazy and bonked into the glass door pretty hard =\

My first rabbit was never like that so this is different for me... If I even turn my head to look at them they run for the hills. Nala isnt as bad as Simba but is still pretty nervous.
