Peanuts are baby rabbits which carry 2 dwarfing gene (one dwarfing gene received from each of its parents). The dwarfing gene is common in smaller breeds (e.g. Dwarf Hotot, Netherland Dwarf, Holland Lop, Mini Rex, American Fuzzy Lop, Jersey Wooly, Lionheads, Polish, Brittania Petite).
Peanuts are genetically deformed. I’ve read that they usually die soon after birth. Sometimes they live for a few days, some manage to survive longer, for a few weeks.
But this little girl, Micro (from Barbi Brown’s Bunnies), is by far the longest living peanut I’ve read about. Micro crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 1999, aged 17 months. That’s right, 17 months! I had no idea peanuts can live that long. What a fighter! A tiny little thing, with a spirit the size of the universe.. her story is truly a testament that nothing is impossible.
Binky free, Micro. May you be showered with your favourite junk food daily at the Bridge!
