I haven't voted either, as again, I would have either. The bigger of the two are the dwarf ones - the minis have smaller ears too. Someone posted some pics earlier showing the difference in ear length.

Dwarf is bigger. Not sure about temperament; our Minis are all quite friendly, but I get the impression that in general, larger rabbits are mellower.

thank!
It was looking at those pics earlier that posed my question as it was difficult to see much of a difference between the 2!

Dwarf lops weigh about 2-2.5kg and mini lops weigh 1.5-2kg. Those are rough weights.

The dwarf lop is actually a medium sized rabbit its just dwarf compared to a french lop (4.5kg +).

Temprements varies between animals. The dwarf lops I've had (all neutered & male) have been very friendly, checky buns.

I've always found that the mini's we have had through the rescue are a bit dippy and can be complete headcases.

I've found this too, in my (albeit limited) experience. I've got one of each, same age, and they get on extremely well. Giles, the mini lop, is much more shy than Abbie, but that could be because she's bigger, quite clearly the boss and regularly reminds him of that! But then he kicks up much more of a fuss when being picked up. But overall they're both very friendly and cheeky! And a real joy to watch and interact with!!

I would guess you'll find them to be similar in general temperament, and that their actual behaviour will be dictated in part by the company they have, past experience etc.

I've got two Mini Lops and there both quite lively. One has got a jealous streak in her, that comes out every now and then.

I would say that on the whole Dwarf Lops are mellower than the minis - which in certain colours are renound for being very hyper.
I would always ahve Dwarfs as I prefer their temperament - they aren't always on the go, and although bigger it isn't by much.
Are you thinking of getting one/two??? :P
