It's The Ears

Not surprisingly one of the most frequently asked questions from children are about bunny ears. They are truly a fascinating bunny part and invaluable tool for survival. How is it that they work independently of each other like they do - one pointing forward and the other to the back? Or when the bunny is really angry both ears are pinned flat against the bunny's back. Subtle messages are transmitted via the ears continually if the bunny is awake. How appropriate the term given to a TV antenna - rabbit ears. Well some of you will know what I'm talking about.

Some friends of ours are on a business trip and their 2 bunnies are staying with us while they are gone. Walter, the white with brown spots bunny man and Barbara Jane, the red head beauty both have magnificent ears, but B.J. has especially gorgeous ears. They are in my opinion perfection. Just wanted to point them out. Bunny eyelashes are another favorite for another day.

So cute! One of our favorite things to do is watch our furry kids ears follow different sounds. They pivot so quickly and precisely.

Walter and Barbara Jane are one of the most beautiful bunny couples ever!! They are also very dedicated to each other, and it's always a joy to see them groom each other in perfect peace and harmony, isn't it?
Ear talk: Dandi, a.k.a. Bunzilla, a.k.a. Queen Bee definitely makes her displeasure known vocally, but we have several pictures where, as you wrote, she pinned her ears back so that you'd almost think she didn't have any ... DISAPPROVAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
