I'm All Ears

This entire post is dedicated to MJ's Doghouse since she's such a faithful reader and commenter. (you hear me lurkers... maybe I'd dedicate a post to you if you commented more)

Yesterday MJ (who is not really "MJ") left this comment:

To answer your question MJ (who is not really "MJ"), no... not all bunnies have such big ears. Ear size in rabbits vary widely among the different breeds.

You've got itty bitty rabbit ears on small breeds like the Lionhead.

and the Netherland Dwarf

Middle size ears on middle size rabbits like the Mini Rex...


Then you have your lop eared rabbits, where their ears hang down. Smaller ears like the Holland Lop...

And longer ears on the larger sized English Lop.

And then really really big (technical term) ears on giant size bunnies like the Flemish Giants.


But I think the Angora Rabbit gets a honorable mention. Mostly because I can't really see their ears well enough to decide what size category they go in. And because they look really fun.

When trimmed, they look like this...

But untrimmed, and in their full glory, they look like this...

I can already hear the nay-sayers saying these are not real rabbits. Well they are real. Don't believe me? Here's a video of one...


Now, MJ (who's not really "MJ") are you sorry you asked?
