Sponsor a Croc Bunny

These rabbits came into our care as a rescue from being fed to crocodilians! They are a special breed, being a smaller variety of the Flemish Giant, which can grow up to weigh as much as 22 lbs. The “Croc Bunnies”, as they have been named, were already tipping the scales at close to 12lbs at just 8 months old. Because of their size and extra care needed in handling, they are not popular for adoptions and remain in our care.

The costs for food, shelter and veterinarian costs all add up quickly and are all covered through fundraising. The Croc Bunnies were also in need of a home of their own as they were housed in a borrowed pen for over 2 years.

Meet the bunnies!

The Story of the "Croc Bunnies"

CDART Volunteers visited the CrocTalk facility during the Summer of 2010 to learn how to safely evacuate CrocTalk animals during a disaster. While there, the volunteers noticed an abundance of Rabbits and Guinea Pigs in a makeshift pen. CrocTalk’s Doug Illman explained that 4 Rabbits were dropped off as a gift of food for the crocodilians, but that he didn’t have the heart to use them as food. His Bunny population quickly grew in size and unable to deal with them he took the opportunity to request some help from CDART.

Saving lagomorphs in non-emergencies is not what the CDART team is used to doing. However, based on the experience of the volunteer team, and with the additional help of the experienced TRACS volunteers, they quickly stepped up and devloped a plan of action.
All the Bunnies were examined, treated for bad cases of earmites, and spayed and neutered by an exotic animal veterinarian. Once fully recovered, all bunnies were moved to a temporary pen at one of the TRACS rabbit sanctuaries to live a life without danger of being fed to Crocodiles.
