||Four and a half months old|
||Santa Rosa, California, USA|
is an imported European rabbit, he flew into Washington State
along with three other Lionhead rabbits. They then did the drive from
Washington to Santa Rosa, California with me. They have seen a lot of
land. The Lionhead rabbit is fairly new to the U.S., they have been
on the East Coast for a couple years, but people on the West Coast are
also falling in love with them.
Leo has a great disposition and lives in the house with seven other
rabbits, two cockatiels, two cats, two dogs, two children, two adults and an
iguana. Everyone has been falling in love with Leo, and his other
Lionhead friends, too. We are hoping the ARBA will accept the breed
when they are presented in 2004.
Leo's mane, like all Lionhead rabbits, is created by a "mane gene."
You must have a lionhead rabbit to have the mane gene, they can then
be bred to other non-maned lionheads to produce mane on offspring. I
am thoroughly enjoying Leo and his friends and am so glad they have
come into my life. Leo is a very special boy!
