Here is my rabbits setup, He is in an xxl krolix furplast cage with an xpen attached to it. The dimentions of the cage are 63.8 x 23.6 x 19.7 inches.
I got my xpen from the rescue I got him from. He eats a ton of hay, and I mix it which I have heard is more enriching. He has pellets as a treat. I also make my own treats for him (he gets one a day) They are made out of, blended pellets, blended oats, 1/4 a bananna, 4 strawberries, 2 cups of water. I feed his veggies never in a bowl. I make him come up and sit on my lap to eat them so we form a stronger bond. ( I never hold him on my lap, but I entince him with food to stay on my lap) I also feed his pellets through out the day in my hand, most of the time when he is also sitting on my lap. He is already neutered. I am always trying to find new ways to enrich him. If you have any suggestions tell me! Should I feed him more types of hay? He eats an orchard and timothy mix, with some oat hay and herbs mixed it. I switch up whats in his pen everyday so he doesnt get bored, his favorite thing is most definatly his toki hut castle. He LOVES to sleep in it.

I will mention that it can be cheaper and more customizable (though time consuming) if you wanted to make your own snuffle mat. You can buy the seagrass mats to make it yourself on Etsy as well. You can go to a fabric store or even use old ripped/tattered clothes/blankets/sheets, cut the fabric into strips, and tie them around the seagrass mat.

Yes I have thought about doing that, but the snuffle mats are either made to look like a rainbow, or they are sewn, not fluffy snuffle mat

I am super jelaous, in a good way, of how much enrichment you can offer to your bun.
I have never heard of at least a quarter of the things that you have, it's just amazing! Then again, rabbit supplies are far more accessible over yonder, so it is kinda no wonder. (when i do get to go to ''either of the englands'', i would most definetly want to stock up on amusement items for my boy.)
I didn't read if your bun has a digging mat or not (just so much on your list i might've hopped a few rows over). I have had good experiences with a self-vowen paper rug and the maize placemat from pepco, you might've seen me post about it. You might have seen this link (and the blog's toy section in general) floating around, but i have gotten quite a few projects from there as well: How to Weave a Paper Mat for Your Bunny
Your setup is amazing!

Thank you all for your compliments! I guess my work has paid off! One thing that I have noticed though is peanut is so much healthier! He poops 10x as much as he use too, I give him a big bag of hay in the middle of his pen and he loves to dig in it, luckily he wont poop there! Also, he drinks 4x as much water! I have to fill up his bowl so much, like 4x a day, before it was just once in the morning, and a little at night!

Everything looks so nice! The only suggestion would be to actually remove some stuff so he can binky around and not run into anything.
