Binky!

Last night Cocoa was having a blast doing binkies in his cage! It is such a fun thing to see. What is a binky?

"The happiest rabbit expression is commonly called a "binky." It's impossible to mistake for anything else, and the first time you see one you will probably wonder if the poor thing is having a convulsion. When a rabbit binkies, it jumps into the air and twists its head and body in opposite directions (sometimes twice) before falling back to the ground. This can be done while standing in one place, or while running, which is really weird looking, and is sometimes called the "happy bunny dance." A rabbit can even turn 180 degrees in midair. All this is a rabbit's way of telling you straight out that it is happy and overall pleased with you and its life."

I will have to try to get a video of Cocoa doing a binky. It's hard to do because it happens so quickly! I'm glad that he is doing them though, since that shows he is happy.

    Hey, Kim.

    Dana from BunnyBlab.com here... Thanks for posting your comment! If you have a few minutes, feel free to browse my podcasts and listen. Some of them (you may want to start on the 3rd one) may be able to help you out, since this is your first bunny.

    Enjoy the podcasts and keep me updated on Cocoa! They really are wonderful pets; they just take some understanding "parents"!
