    My foster bunny Logan lays in his crate then suddenly flops on his side. I'm not worried as it seems like he's asleep but I've not noticed any of my other rabbits do this. Is this normal? He seems to 'crash' so quickly.

    The flop as demonstrated by George. It just means they're happy and feel safe enough to completely relax.

    Thank you, yep that's what he does. Aw, it's breaking my heart that I can't keep him even though he feels so relaxed with me :(

    I remember the first time I saw my first rabbit Sophie do it. She was loose in the garden eating grass, I was watching her out the window and she suddenly dropped onto her side. I run out there thinking "oh my god she's dead". Needless to say I scared her as much as she had scared me by making her jump when she was asleep and comfy.

    I love the bunny flop.
    I have pics of Sydnee and Angel doing it but they are on my phone and I cant get them on here. It's funny to watch them when they do it.

    My mums little nethi does the flop too but she sometimes flops so hard she ends up rolling herself right over, soooooo cute.
