Eleven bunns here at The House of Rabbits could not agree more!!!
I agree, they are not good pets for small or medium children. My son, age 11, wanted a bunny. We researched rabbits and adopted a rabbit from Oakland Animal Shelter(fantastic shelter, btw). He lost interest in the rabbit quickly because she needed time to adjst to a new home/people. He had promised to care for the rabbit, so he does. In the meantime, I am in love with this bun and its fantastic! I have a great pet that I don’t have to clean up after!
