Hi I have a 4/5 year old mini Rex and she is grunting, biting and stomping her foot at me at me and her roommate. She is a very sassy unspayed bunny. What should I do/is it normal?????

All of my rabbits do that occasionally, my rabbits also grunt not sure about the thumping and grunting as my buns normally grunt in happiness

It is probably horomonal. She most likely is claiming her territory or telling you to stay away. I’m think you said she was a show rabbit somewhere, so just be prepared that this is going to happen.

Probably 'spring fever' and sexual frustration. Getting her spayed could possibly help. Though if she is a show rabbit, I guess that's not an option.

She is being territorial. This will mostly be solved when or if she gets spayed! It might be a hormonal time for her as well so it could be more prominent than other times. This is completely normal behavior though for an unspayed rabbit. Do show rabbits need to have everything intact?
