Hey everyone, bit of a silly question, but we have had our rabbit now for two weeks and he is starting to recover from stasis, but we still havent seen him side flop. He isnt scared of us, since he is always coming up to us, to stroke him and licks us. Our last rabbit did it all the time.
Is this normal?

I don’t really know, but maybe it’s because he is recovering and it may be slightly uncomfortable to flop?

That’s normal one of my bunnies only started to side flop after a few months and now you can see it at least ever day. But that’s after 3 years with me and he still prefer being a loaf instead. So there nothing to worry about, it’s normal ☺

My bunny has been with us several months and rarely ever does a side flop. She did yesterday but it has been rare.

Yes, some rabbits do it more than others. Just a personality thing.

Also, if it's cool in their environment at all, they will be less inclined to flop as they loaf to conserve body heat.
