How long should it take for a lops ears to grow Sometimes when she is sitting around one ear is up and one is down but both ears can sit up is this normal for a lop earred rabbit?
Rabbits are all grown up at around 6 months of age, so if your
bunny is older than that, her ears are probably as long as they
will ever get. I had a fuzzy Chinchilla Mini Lop who could do
extraordinary things with her ears! Rabbits use their ears to
listen for predators, so they have to work really well. That
includes swiveling around in all directions to pick up sound.
Rabbits also can communicate with their ears - notice that your
bunny seems calm when her ears are down and agitated when they are
straight up? Mine could keep one ear up even when she was asleep.
You should pay attention to your bunny and learn what her ear
signals mean, so that you can understand her moods and so you'll
know if there are any problems with those lovely ears. There is a
sickness rabbits can get which causes them to tilt their heads and
waggle their ears almost constantly. If she begins to act
unusually, take her to the veterinarian for an exam. Good luck!
Jill - Well Said, May I Add, If Your Rabbit Is having One Ear Up
And Down, It Is Most Likely to be A helicopter Lop, It Will
Sometimes have its Ears Both Lopped Down Or Both Straight Up
Depending On What Type it Is.
