Is he molting? Could another rabbit have pulled it out? Does Bubbles have enough toys to play with during the day? Sometimes when rabbits get board they will pull their fur out.

he is scratching his ear, but not very often and he really likes grooming that ear only. I'll go get some twigs for him to chew on

Does it look clean on the inside of his ear? Good idea with the tree branches.
