    This is "Bella" a 6 month old Flemish Giant and "Charmin" a 2 1/2 month old Netherland Dwarf. I love these bunnies!

    Full grown, Netherlands are about the size of an adult Flemish's head. I get such a kick out of the size difference.

    I have a Britannia Petite here, he weighs 1 pound, 11 ounces. Smallest rabbit I've ever seen!

    How cute! I used to have a jersey wooly and a french lop. Definitely a huge size difference! I still have the french lop but sadly the jersey wooly passed away. I love the odd sized rabbits though!

    GREAT picts!

    How are the dwarfs for pets? I had heard they can be a bit high strung and nippy but that was a while ago...

    I used to have a HUGE French Lop as a child that I LOVED. He was very laid back and mellow.

    Quote:Charmin is the sweetest thing. From the very first day I brought her home she has been very calm, sweet and not the least bit skittish. I get her out each night and sit with her in my chair with my feet propped up, she runs up and down my legs and chest and has the best time. After a while she lays down on my thighs, stretches out, yawns and just lays there while I pet her. She is sooooo sweet. I think the breeder that I got her from had paid alot of attention to her.
