Nearly Hairless Rabbit
What a bizarre anomaly? I couldn’t find any info on the little guy in the photo above, but I did find a sad story about the little guy in the photos bellow.
Say hello and goodbye to ‘Little Roo’:
This amazing little character is quite rare and was accidentally bred here in Australia. Considering that she is the result of inbreeding (parents are brother and sister), we can presume what occurred is a genetic fault. It’s also interesting that in previous litters her mother regularly produced a kit having a bald patch on its forehead. In maturity however these oddballs grew fur over the bald area.
Roo failed to thrive and grow as a kitten normally would and several weeks after these photos were taken she appeared to lose even more condition… Then one morning Roo was found deceased – just as if she had gone to sleep and never woke up…’sniff, sniff’.
