    I have a 9 week old male bunny, unsure of his breed. He has helicopter ears pretty much all the time, but ears do droop when he is very relaxed!

    He's a lop and he's fuzzy but I don't think he's a "fuzzy lop". American Fuzzy Lops (often just called fuzzy lops) are actually a pretty uncommon breed. It's more likely that he's a lionhead lop cross (sometimes called lionlop; which is its own breed in the UK but not recognized in the US so the term is used more loosely) or a longhaired lop cross.

    Thank you, I agree. I was looking around online and think he may be a lionlop. There was no information where I got him, so thanks for your insight!

    From these pictures, the fur around the ears does seem a bit longer, could be a cross. But, sometimes, babies take bit to lose the fuzzy, baby fur. Give him a few months.

    Just wanted to say that based on his breed his ears will probably fully drop around 6 months old. I love the picture with one ear up... so cute.
