Hi! I'm a new bunny owner and I just got my first baby. His vet visit isn't scheduled until next week so i'm not even sure of the gender and definitely not the breed... he's VERY tiny and the fur is longer than i've seen in pictures of rexes

His one ear flops down to the side a lot so someone on reddit told me he may be a holland lop who's ears haven't dropped yet. i'm not even sure of his age... the pet store i got him from had no information:( any advice would be awesome!

He looks like a Holland Hop to me,
he turn out to be a “helicopter ear” bun 😊.

I see your using paper bedding all across the cage.
I would suggest investing in a cat sized litter box and using
Wood Stall Pellets, much much cheaper than paper bedding and do a great job

Welcome to the forum! I think it is a Rex (it has the rex face)/Lop mix. There is no way to know if it is Holland Lop for sure until it is full-grown because it is all based on weight.

I agree with Lucas the Bun. You should litter train your rabbit instead of using paper pellets all over the cage and you should invest in a playpen (look at Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Goodwill, and yardsales to find good deals).

I could’nt tell if you had an x-pen attached but I would definitely suggest getting one, pet store cages are way to small for rabbits.

Rabbits need at least 24 square feet of space,
but the more the better. 🙂

Thank you guys! Yes, I actually am building him a larger enclosure to run around AND have bought him a nice litter box and litter. He also gets plenty of time out of his cage to run in my room until I finish his new enclosure.

Thank you so much for the thoughts and advice 💖

It's a mixed breed rabbit. Most rabbits are. It's definitely not a rex, it has the wrong fur type. I'm not seeing much holland lop in there either, they're usually a pretty stocky breed and this rabbit is fairly narrow in the head, even if it were a mix.

The color is called "Tricolor"
