Oh Nichole, How frightening..... Has there been any other signs ? Has EB not been well or behaving differently ? It's so strange that he could do a complete 180 after they have been getting on well without any trouble.
The important things is Astro OK now ?

Astro is fine just a lil shook up but EB is showing a lot of aggression toward him now they are separated in the room but the open cages they have if one is in his cage the other can see him Astro went up by the cage while EB was laying  down and he was tryin to attack the thru the cage I feel like its my fault cuz they were so good together...... I believe that EB was abused b4 we adopted him tho so could this possibly be a part if the problem?

I don't know... I have to keep Pipi and Nermal separate because of fighting. The bond was lost when Nermal was returned, Nermie is fine with the others though, Pipi is the aggressor and she has been spoilt rotten since birth. Pipi does fancy herself contender to Peppers alpha bunny throne though. Maybe its a dominance things. Has there been any territory marking. They are both neutered aren't they ?

Hi Nichole, So it sounds like he might not be neutered. I would get him to the vet for a look see.
If EB hasn't it would explain alot and why at 6 months he could turn aggressive in a very short space of time without warning.

Hi Men, Get him to the vet... Either he is not neutered and has just hit puberty head on or he might have some other problem causing him pain and making him aggressive. Puberty rage would definitely cause the lunging. You could contact the recsue and insist they pay the cost if he was supposed to be done at the time you took him home.

Hi Nichole, Don't feel like an idiot. It was perfectly reasonable to assume they would be OK if it had gone this long without aggression. If he is 6 months old this is exactly how it can happen. You will probably find once he is neutered you can rebond them just as you planned after a month when his hormones have settled. He won't be bad for life. Poor little EB is very fortunate to have found you and I think he will be a beautiful bun once he doesn't have to worry about being a butchy boy. And the good thing is he is at the right age. Old enough to cope well and young enough to adapt and change afterwards.

Well we have decide to use a large dog cage and rotate them in and out for floor time give one a free nite out on the floor every other nite until I can make a bunny condo next weekend and we will continue with that until mr EB the bad to the bone bunny is neutered and then we will work on the bonding until then they will just have to learn to love the smell one each other by being rotated in the condo and out free running in the room but no more fighting we have kept them apart and litter training 101 for both spoiled buns
