a dewlap is mass of skin under a rabbits neck == A fold of skin that depends from the neck. It's a normal feature; not a condition. This occurs in dogs and humans as well as rabbits -- other animals as well.

In most breeds the doe has a dewlap and a buck is disqualified if it has a dewlap. Some breeds do not have a dewlap at all. A doe will have a dewlap by the time she is breeding age (which is 6 months:)
