Hello, I was wandering whether my bunny Snowy is a dwarf lop or a mini lop because I have seen loads of dwarf lops and they are huge.
Snowy is very small compared to them and his fur is quite soft too.
Does anyone know the difference?

dwarfs have dwarf ears, but are normal size, mini lops are mini-sized :) i think anyway

Do you have pictures and weights?

Mini lops are the true dwarfs, large head, big eyes, short ears and body. Dwarf lops don't have the dwarf gene, but they did look like dwarfs compared to the Frenchie when they were named.

If Snowy is 2.7kg id say he was a dwarf lop :) My 2 dwarf lops are 2.3 and 2.5kg :) Mini's are generally much smaller :) xXx

That sounds like dwarf lop size. All my bunnies are dwarfs and are around 2.6 - 3kg.

:lol: Robert's no fatty though, well, a bit, but he's a dental bun so I try to keep him fatter. :oops: I have to admit to never seeing a true lionhead though, is that why he's bigger?

Our Dwarfs weigh between 2.3 and 2.7kg...our Mini lops weigh between 1.3 and 1.6kg

I would say that Snowy is a Dwarf lop :D

There's no way she's a mini, sounds like a large dwarf lop

Thanks I guess he must be a dwarf lop but I have seen some that are twice the size of him.
Here is a picture of him relaxing.

A lot of the 'dwarf lops' are cross breeds, so yes a lot probably do seem a lot bigger :)
