Love this photo of her and just had to share. This is "Big Mama", our main doe in our little rabbit herd. She is a Red (or Ruby) Eye White (REW for short) New Zealand rabbit. Her breed was specifically developed for meat consumption and usage of their pelts. They were/are the typical breed of rabbit used for medical and cosmetic testing. They were not designed as pets and as such she is a bit wary of people. She will happily accept gentle head pets though and she is an amazingly gentle mother rabbit when she kindles. As skittish as she is sometimes, I love her to pieces.
