    Hi all. so half a year ago i got my rabbit mars neutered. the hormonal spike wore off and he was a pretty normal rabbit. then, about a month ago, i noticed him constantly circling the ball and licking it. once he even tried to get on it. i (stupidly) thought it was adorable. this morning, however, i walked in on him humping the ball several times. What does this mean? He is one year old. Here’s the video https://share.icloud.com/photos/0BByToGzIFF8ERPlNYDLMRGSw

    My male will mount my female when he gets frustrated at her for not grooming him back. Maybe he is frustrated at not having enough toys, room to move around or bored and maybe needs a friend?

    Even neutered rabbits often react to the increased amount of daylight in early spring. Its jokingly called “March hare syndrome”. There is some production of testosterone in the adrenalin glands, and there are many other hormones at play. Rabbits have a very active hormone system.

    This should pass, if it doesn’t, it could be a response to for example pain. Frustration is also a possibility.

    My boy Gimly was neutered already when we got him(approx 5 years old), and he would always go around trying to hump his companion Bella even after they were bonded. Once she passed away we got him a stuffed companion that he mounted all the time, and he also liked to mount our feet and arms as well if we were on the floor with him. he seemed very pleased by this. but everytime he was at the vet for his teeth trim he was perfectly healthy, and we even mentioned it to our vet but she didnt seem concerned. i wonder if it is because he wasnt neutered until later in life so he still had adult hormones.

    Yes it could be just spring. My spayed female rabbit has been humping her stuffie the past few days…

     She’s just been to the vets with a clean bill of health, and she’s always gotten a bit “frisky” around this time of year
