'Hairless' Rabbits
I've seen an increasing amount of interest in 'hairless' rabbits on other forums just of late Undecided

I really hope they do not become the next fad *sigh* Sad

No idea tbh, going from my research last night not many people keep or breed them due to the very, very high mortality rate (it is very lucky if they get past 4 weeks put it that way), so I imagine their hocks will be a nightmare Sad

I just wish people would learn that hairless animals are a genetic mutation which should NOT be bred for Angry


Here is a pic of one bumblicious hope your ready:-

Oh right I don't think I would actually have known that was a bunny! I don't understand why people would have them thought if they don't live past 4 weeks

The same reason people breed true hairless rats who are full of health problems, depending on which strain they are they can be prone to tumors, eye and respiratory infections, heart or kidney disease, diabetes or skin problems. The average lifespan of true hairless rats is 9-18 months old.
Does generally do not lactate at all or enough to support a litter, and cannibalism or abandonment is common Sad but this doesn't stop people Angry

RE: 'Hairless' Rabbits
That's horrible, not the bunny's fault obviously but why would people breed something that is so vulnerable to mortality issues. Like you say it's a mutation that goes against nature's survival of the fittest. The bunny doesn't look very happy either, poor thing.
