        Hello!

        I always took grunting noises as a “I’m not happy” sound, but my male rabbit who is a little over half a year old began to make these grunting noises while running around our living room. He “binkies” non stop while running and making these grunting noises, so I guess that means they are happy noises!

        I’d like to get some confirmation that these are happy noises, thank you!

          Some bunnies are just very vocal. He could be grunting or honking. Neither is exclusively a “bad” sound. Some bunnies just make noises when they are very excited? Is he neutered?

            It does sound like it could be “honking”! My bun sounds like a little pig when he honks… more like an “oink” lol

                He is not neutered no. I was wondering if it was a territorial noise but it’s when he’s running and binky-ing around! He will also do it when he hears us grabbing hay or his food bag… so again I’m hoping it’s happy noises haha!

                  Yep, I bet he’s honking! It’s a happy (and often …ahem… amorous) noise 😉

                  It is a happy noise, but its also a noise a bun makes when it’s courting another bun. It’s more common in intact rabbits, but f ex my neutered girl grunts when she comes running and circles me for a treat.

                  A territorial bun might growl. It can be accompanied by a lunge or it can just be a warning growl. It’s difficult to interpret it as anything other than a growl.
