“It’s not a phase, Mom!” screams the Dwarf Hotot as she hops into her little room in the family warren and thumps her Doc Martin-clad back feet.
“It’s not a phase, Mom!” screams the Dwarf Hotot as she hops into her little room in the family warren and thumps her Doc Martin-clad back feet. It’s easy to mistake the tiny rabbit, the Dwarf Hotot, for a fan of the band Evanescence with their entirely white bodies and their black-rimmed eyes.
Weighing only 3 pounds and with its short stumpy ears, Dwarf Hotots are strictly a “fancy” breed of rabbit and are not used for meat or fur (which they shouldn’t, yells this bunny-keeping copywriter).
Dwarf Hotots are extremely friendly rabbits and are often kept as pets. They have been known to bond with their owners and if you’re really lucky, you might even see them binky - which is a mix of jumping and twisting their bodies, and rabbits do this to show how happy they are. Due to their size, Dwarf Hotots aren’t quite as energetic as their larger counterparts but they still love to play and look for any excuse to hop around. So, while they might look about emo, they’re actually pretty chipper - granted, they do like to jump about like they’re in a mosh pit.
