    Bunny don’t do dust bath, but myself have seen my outdoors bunny playing with dirt outside while they have been digging tunnels.

    It might just him playing around with something new and he got really curious.

    I thought he might be hot and he might be trying to cool down because it's really hot here..it's summer here right now.

    Aha, then it quite normal with playing around with the sand. My outdoor bunnies do the same but with dirt. They get so dirty claws and feet, sometimes even the fur will be covered. They love sleeping on it, after they have dugout new fresh dirt.
