(To the comment below) You do not have a Himalayan likely. Himalayans are commonly confused for the much larger Californian. For More Information please contact The american Rabbbit Breeders Association (Google search it)

Why are they described as small breeds? They are huge compared to Dwarf Hotot, polish and netherland dwarfs, they are small breeds. Mine is huge and keeps growing and growing yet she's not even 4months! Mine will definately be NOT be small...she is the most gentle and docile creature though,love her to bits!!

    These guys have the best personalities and are great pets. They are considered small as usually just 2 1/2 to 4 pounds. Maybe you got a big one. Just love him and enjoy.

    I agree, I love her to bits! Damn mine is definately huge. I am pretty definate she is purebred but I will have to look up some more rabbit breeds to see if maybe she is crossbred.

    You could have a Californian instead. They have the same markings but get 8-10lbs.

    It looks like a California. I am not sure what I had but I loved him. I had a rabbit with similar markings for a year and a half. I cannot tell you what a joy he was to have. He was unlike any other rabbit we had as he was very social. He loved to watch tv with me on the couch and sometimes he would hop into my lap, he would run circles between my legs. He would hum sometimes. My greatest pleasure was watching him run back and forth and the couch. He would binky a lot too, I lost my bunny last year when he died of a heart attack. He had an enlarged heart, I cannot tell you how much I miss him and know I will never find another like him. I spoiled him rotten but I would do it all over again.

I have a Himalayan bunny and he is the most friendly, playful, sweet, CUDDLY bunny! He is my baby. Although people say they are the most friendly and I believe that, but truth is every bunny is different. They can be mean, aggressive and some friendly and sweet. Don't rely on Internet and if you really want to find the perfect one spend time with some at the pound. Just my advice. I had no intention on getting a year old white bunny. I wanted a baby, but I saw him at the corner of my eye and I fell in love! He's a big bunny, probably a rare size for a himalayan but he's the best. Good luck to everyone with their bunnies!

    Good for you. I am glad you found one to love.

    I can tell our new bunny is going to be great. My son and I walked into the pet store to buy dog treats ferret food and bearded dragon supplies. My sons comment was cute...'Mom you have to see this rabbit!' We both were smitten. So we walked out with a 'bunny in a box' Okay now I am wondering if you could help guide me on our inside animals introduction. We have a big nice cage that I put HOP in and draped a deep dark purple towel over it. Should I let him get used to his new environment for a couple of days or should I hold him amongst the others. We are going to have to do a lot of reading because we have never had a bunny. I just want his personality to stay the same and do the right thing. If you can help that would be great. If not then maybe someone will read this and possibly give us cues. Thank you, Michelle

    Bunnies are great companions for children, but they should be kept at a distance from other pets until they are well aquainted. Dogs and cats can sometimes do fine with a rabbit once they know each other, and with supervision. The ferret however, may or may not be a good companion. Sometimes exotics simply don't acclimate with other animals as well as the domestics, so be careful.

I just have to comment! That bunny that is in the picture is a Himi Netherland Dwarf not a Himalayan rabbit!

    I have a Himalayan rabbit and it is wonderful. It can get territorial when it comes in my house and can start to bite people! But, he is normally very nice, and he lets me snuggle with him and whenever I go to his hutch, he comes out of his nesting box to say hi. Oh, I almost forgot, that picture is not of a Himalayan. They are not as chubby and they are longer.

    I don't know - not really but have been told the photo is himilayan. I looked up images of Himilayan and there is a variance in color and in body in many of the photos. A cross - can't be sure but based on the Himilayan images - I think this is a Himilayan. Then I looked up images for the Himilayan Netherland dwarf and this photo sure doesn't look like one of them although I can see what you are saying about the body type. Try and see Himilayan Netherland

    (Regarding the second contributed picture, lower on the page) That is not a Himalayan rabbit. Himalayans have longer heads, larger markings and ears that are roughly the same length as their head. That rabbit's small ears show that it is a netherland dwarf.
