Lionhead is a breed of domestic rabbit recognized by the British Rabbit Council (BRC) and by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA). The Lionhead rabbit has a wool mane encircling the head, reminiscent of a male lion as its name implies. Other Lionhead characteristics include a high head mount, compact upright body type, short well-furred 2- to 3 1/2-inch ears, and a weight of 2.5 to 3.75 pound
A single-maned Lionhead has a mane around the just the head and neck. A double-maned Lionhead has 2 copies of the recessive gene. This gives an additional "skirt" around the hind legs.
We are loving the personality of this little one. Part rabbit, part Pomeranian, part squirrel! Soon we'll find her the right buck. For now though, she's enjoying being top bun.
While fostering a new Lionhead male, he was so determined to court the free roam Flemish Giant house bun that he scaled his enclosure and completed his quest! We now have Flemheads! Though they are turning out to just be giant lionheads, Flemheads is funner to say.
