I have a lovely scar on my right wrist that was put there by the teeth of a Netherland Dwarf 15 years ago. I raised that rabbit; I know for a fact that he was not scared or mishandled. I don't ever want to hear that one of my rabbits did that to a small child! A certain amount of personality is inherited, and I want to be producing docile, friendly animals. I make it a point never to breed aggressive rabbits; and that goes double for "pet" breeds.

Even when I was raising rabbits for the meat market, I didn't keep aggressive rabbits. Aggressiveness is inherited! Not a good idea to breed her.

Maybe she is being mean because she doesn't know you??

that's why I'm definitely trying to rid her of it I definitely don't want that to happen to anyone it's crazy the male is her brother and the other female is her mother and neither of them are aggressive a bit scared but definitely not mean

I don't know what causes them to be mean. I would just have one grow up like that occassionally.

But, ther is the possibility that maybe she is stressed by the change in her environment.
