Hopper is a 5 week old lionhead rabbit. Lionhead rabbits are a fairly new, but popular breed of domesticated rabbits. They get their name from the long hair surrounding the face, similar to the mane of a male lion. They are also small in size and have shorter ears compared to most breeds.
As you can see, my daughter is thrilled with her new pet!
This is actually our second rabbit; Thumper being our first one.
One good thing that rabbits supply is nitrogen-rich manure which I constantly use in the garden. Unlike some other manures, rabbit manure wont burn plants if added directly to the garden. So, as you can see, some pets do have extra benefits.
