    Some bunnies are just more curious, lively, agressive, laid back more so than others.  If you threw a ball for a pup - some will chase it and some won't.  Sounds like if you throw a ball for your little Havana - she will chase it.  She is curious and attentive and wants to know what eveything is.  So something new and she runs up to it and tries to determine - what it is and can she eat it.  I don't know why you would want to stop it. -  Just me.  I would think you would want to capitalize on it.  I would take her into a small room - like the bathroom with a bunch of objects hiden behind your back and put them down or throw them one at a time.  Sit down on the floor with your Havana and have some fun.  It will get some of the excess energy out of the Havana.  Then have a little stuffed animal (little) that you can use with your hand to play with the Havana and then use your hand to play with the Havana.  She will be calmer, she will get used to your hand, you will get used to her antics and eventually you will be able to hold and pet her.

    Just do the best you can think of to get it set up correctly. I like a space like the corner of a kitchen or laundry room if it leads to the rest of the home. Hutch with stairs or landing that comes out and a litter in the hutch and at the bottom of the hutch. I bet you a dollar you will get as much enjoyment from that bunny as she does.

    They do growl. In most cases it is just a sound similar to a puppy playing. However, it can be an alert if he is moddy, not wanting to play or afraid of new people, which happens the more they bond with you. Have you read the article on Havana Rabbits on Animal World? There is some good insight there.

I have a black Havana named BlackJack. We adopted him about month ago. He is not really a friendly rabbit. We bought a nice big cage, I talk to him all the time and let him loose in the room everyday for exercise. He does not want to be picked up, but will let me pet him sometimes. He bites me or my daughter all the time. I have no idea how old he is. I'm thinking about getting him fixed. Will this help? Also I think he's spraying and it stinks! I really want to keep him and give him a chance. He is beautiful. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Yes, neutering should do the trick.  if you want a PET bunny - you should always neuter.  make sure the vet has done this before on bunnies and is an exotic vet.  A weekend class does not an exotic vet make -

    I have Havanas, all you do to make them nice is give them lots of attention. They don't need a big cage because there small. Talking to them can freak them out. Giving him exercise is good. Go to the vet to find out how old he is.Is he by a girl? By the way I'm 9.

I got a Havana bunny named Cupcake about three years ago from the Humane Society in Laveen, Arizona. I had always wanted a pet bunny when I was a child, but we moved around so much my parents wouldn't let me have one. Cupcake is amazing...I am so glad I got her! She is soft and sweet, and she is very curious about everything. My parents love to watch her for me when I go out of town (they call her their grand-bunny), and they always buy her new toys and treats. Everyone loves her, she even gets to come to the office with me sometimes. If anyone is thinking about getting a pet rabbit, I would definately recommend a Havana. I would also suggest checking out your local small animal rescue or Humane never know what you might find!
