    I have a male rabbit who is nearly 3 years old. He has just started showing signs of randiness, running around my legs, and trying to hump my leg :eek:. He is even showing signs to wards my cat. Is this a seasonal thing, or something that will go on forever?

    Theres your answer its all down to hormones. Get him done and he'll be a better mannered bunny.

    More than likely it will be ongoing. Rabbits aren't really sseasonal breeders. They are induced ovulators meaning that a doe will ovulate when an entire male is around. Your boy might be able to smell a nearby girl, maybe a neighbour has recently got a rabbit. Either way its unlikely that his behaviour will calm unless he loses his bits.

    Thanks for the reply. We live out in the county side. They is a lot of wild rabbits very close to us, so that is probably the reason for his behaviour.
