When I went to the Fair yesterday they had some really pretty bunnies in cages and I am wondering if anyone knows how many different types of bunnies there are. The ones around our property are gray with a white tale but the picture I have on here are of some that are black and white and oh so pretty.

I had some rabbits like these (they are called "butterflies" or "russians" here), and some of them were very aggressive : I have been bitten several times by mothers (they were certainly protecting their children, but it is not common). My favorite was the New Zealand rabbit, which is in fact an American rabbit. They have small ears, are less afraid by human than other rabbits, and they are a better choice than the ones in your photo if you want to offer a rabbit pet to a child.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search New Zealand white rabbit. New Zealand red rabbit New Zealand rabbits are a breed of rabbit, which despite the name, are American in origin. The breed originated in California from rabbits im

I had no idea that bunnies would bite you, guess because I never thought of it. Thanks for the information about the bunnies.

@Marcyaz They are rodents, and they hurt when they bite.

Those bunnies are really really cute. I'm looking forward to have them and wondering how they will run in my backyard.

They are fast running when I let my dogs out the bunnies on the other side of the fence run off like the wind.

Bunnies make really cute pets. There are some wild ones that you see at night in the area that UI live in.

Those rabbits are lovely! I have never seen black and white ones. I do not know all types of bunnies, but I wonder if the hare is considered a rabbit? You know the wild hares that run so fast and have such long legs like a kangaroo almost. Nice you can see the rabbits where you live Marcy.

Ocean, we also see deer and peacocks and other animals in this area. We have two acres of land and and no other buildings for about 1 or 2 miles around us. I also thought those in the picture were lovely rabbits and look nothing like the wild rabbits that we see near our house.

@Marcyaz Have you ever seen the wild hares? They are usually so big and fast.

@TiarasOceanView I don't think I have Ocean at least I don't recall. I wish I was fast enough to take a picture of the deer around here.

I have no clue how many types of bunnies there are but I know there are a lot of them. I have had bunnies before and they are such sweet little pets but their cage does stink, no matter how often you clean it. Some people train them to go in a litter box but I was never able to do that with the ones I had.

Simone, I still have no idea how many different types of bunnies there are but I guess in time I will find out. I didn't know that the cages the bunnies stayed in were that stinky maybe that is why so people keep them outside. Trained to go in a litter box would sure be better than in the cage but I never would have thought of that.

@Marcyaz I read up on take care of rabbits before I got one and it was said that they an be trained to use a litter box. Mine never did though. That last one I had got so big that I had to find her another home. The daycare where my grandsons went had rabbits and they happily took her in.

Lops rabbits are called "ram rabbits" here. They are pretty but not convenient to breed for meat. I never had a lops, but I have had an angora rabbit, just for the fun. It was constantly losing hairs, and I needed to comb it often.

There's probably over hundreds of species of bunnies. I have a black dwarf rabbit, he's completely black and is as cute as a button!

I'm in town where I am in Indiana. Not seen many bunny rabbits this year. Maybe just a few. Today, as I was driving to work, I saw a hawk sitting right on top of a utility pole. I'd much rather see them sitting at the top of a tree.
