30 Cutest Bunnies You Will Want to Take Home
They're soft, cuddly and irresistibly cute! These photogenic rabbits are guaranteed to make your day a little hoppier.
Somebunny’s day is about to get a whole lot better
The Easter season generally gets people swooning over the cuteness of adorable bunnies (thanks, Easter bunny!), but we think cute bunny pictures can brighten your day all year long. Dogs and cats get a lot of attention for being irresistibly cute (and deservedly so), but we dare you not to say “awww” at these cute bunny pictures. For some more irresistible animals that you may not see as many cute photos of, we’ve got some heart-meltingly cute goat pictures, pig pictures and just cute farm animals in general.
Before you resolve to add one of these adorable bunnies to your household, keep in mind that rabbits are a very different type of pet than cats and dogs. Unlike those animals, which are considered predators, rabbits are prey. It’s not in the furry little creatures’ nature to enjoy being picked up because that’s how predators capture them. You have to take a more deliberate approach to earn a bunny’s trust, according to the House Rabbit Society. Unless you’ve done thorough research on how to choose and care for a pet rabbit, stick to looking at these cute bunny pictures. Or move on to these cute alpaca pictures that will make your day!

The Dutch Rabbit is one of the most popular and recognizable breeds, according to the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA). A Dutch rabbit named Bernie even graces the packages of Annie’s Homegrown Foods. We think a real-life one is even cuter, though, and makes a great subject for a happy picture!

This little guy could be the model for a Russell Stover chocolate bunny—a great choice for Easter candy.
The Harlequin rabbit comes in two gorgeous varieties—the Japanese and Magpie. The Japanese rabbit is orange or fawn with either black, blue, chocolate or lilac. The Magpie is white with either black, blue, chocolate or lilac, and both varieties are around 10 pounds of stunning beauty. Don’t forget to read the brave story of a pup who saved his rabbit friend from a dog attack.
This Holland Lop bunny almost looks like a little puppy dog with those droopy ears, compact body and round snuggleable face. The hallmark features help this Netherlands-originating breed rank as one of the top five most popular breeds in the ARBA.
French Lop bunnies, like this one, are hardly dainty, with massive, heavy-boned physiques and broad sturdy heads. But, hey, you gotta have a sturdy base to hold those thick, adorable ears that hang so low. Need more cuteness? These funny monkey pictures are sure to get you giggling.
It’s a far stretch from a lion to a rabbit, but this petite little four-pounder sure is trying to come off as the king of the jungle with its distinctive mane! Speaking of lions—check out these dogs that look like lions.
Flemish Giant rabbits average around 14 pounds but have been known to tip the scales at over 20 pounds. This one’s just a baby! The docile personality of the Flemish Giant has earned it the nickname “Gentle Giant,” and some say the breed acts more like a dog than a rabbit.

We’re melting over this little gray ball of fluff! What a sweet tiny animal.
More than meets the eye
This cutie is brown from head to toe, but its breed, the Himalayan, actually has the ability to change color! Most Himalayans are born with white fur, but depending on the climate or even changes in seasonal climates, their color can vary. A white rabbit living in a cold climate turns black, for example. Check out these “facts” about animals that are totally wrong.
You lookin’ at me?
The sweet and delicate little bun-bun is a Netherland dwarf, the smallest breed of domesticated rabbits, weighing in at just two-and-a-half pounds. We dare you not to smile at that face! Its adorable short round head and chubby cheeks, paired with those little-bitty perky ears, make these honey bunnies hard to resist.
The American Chinchilla rabbit, like this one, can be credited with the development of more breeds and varieties of rabbits worldwide than any other domestic breed, according to the ARBA. This salt-and-pepper hunka-bun is the rarest of all the Chinchilla breeds. But don’t confuse it with another small pet—the Chinchilla, which is actually a delightfully cute rodent.
Posing for the camera
Regarded as the “King of the Rabbits,” the Rex was first shown at the Paris International Rabbit Show in 1924 and, soon after, introduced to swooning fans in the United States. The Rex can be seen in 16 color varieties that show off its Chinchilla-like fur. Shown here is a Mini Rex!
Did someone say carrots?
There’s a new-ish breed hoppin’ down the bunny trail, and it’s turning heads with its brilliant fiery reddish fur. In 2005 the Thrianta became the newest breed passed by the ARBA Standards Committee since 1988. It was originally developed in Sweden for the Royal House of Orange-Nassau in the late 1930s.
We don’t know what caught this gorgeous bunny’s attention, but it’s sure caught ours!
