Peanuts are rabbits who receive a double dose of the dwarfing gene. They usually do not survive the first week as this is a birth defect. The little one in picture here (at day 37) was born, along with his siblings on June 4, 2011. No special care was taken. He was weaned with his siblings and resided in a small "special" cage. I don't believe he's a runt as I've raised runts before. Although small, they usually have normal sized ears and eyes for their body size. As you can see, his ears are tiny and his eyes are large for his head. He's active; eats oats, pellets and hay. He comes to the cage door at feeding time and warms himself in a feed bowl filled with aspen shavings. I'm not sure how long he will last, but we will care for him until his time comes. (I'm referring to it as a "him". His siblings are all bucks, but he's too small to sex.) UPDATE: Peanut has been fading the last few days. His bottom is slimy black, but he's still eating his oats and a few pellets and drinking water. Until the last day, he had been eating his hay in the morning. That morning he just layed down on it. The little peanut died on day 143. 06/04/11 - 10/25/11.
