    Hi! This is Bunny (creative name, right?) well, I was just wondering how old you think he is and if he is a specific breed. He is so cute and sweet!

    How big is he? Can you take a pic next to something so I can see his size? My first thought is Rex or mini rex, but his fur looks a bit too long unless it is only a baby.

    I totally missed that - the pic is dark. Thanks! I am still on the fence about him being a rex.

    He is a baby, that's why I was wondering how old he might be.

    From pic #1 I would assume 8 weeks, if it's a rex. Do you KNOW how many bunny breeds there are out there that look like that??​

    I highly doubt it's a rex, the hair is way too long. I'd say it's probably a larger mixed breed and somewhere around 3-5 weeks old.

    I say mixed breed, between 4 and 8 weeks.
