      So, I’ve recently noticed that when a rabbit flops it means they kinda like fall over.. my buns have never done that.. I mean, they dont like fall over. They just lay down and stretch out. Are they still flopping if they just lay down and stretch out vs. falling over??

      I have had my bun since she was 8 weeks, she is now 16 months. she has only flopped 3 times that I have seen, other than that she just stretches out and kicks her back feet out. you will know when your buns flop if you are in the same room as it looks like they just died, mine did it one time in front of a closet door and when she flopped she hit the door with a loud bang, it didn’t even bother her, I thought she would freak out and run.

      Indie does both things. She usually eases herself down a bit before full on floppage

      My last bun flopped a couple times (first time I honestly thought she died) but my current bun Moonpaw has never flopped. He stretches out and after a while seems to just melt into a happy puddle on the floor.

      My Panda rarely flops – so much so that it’s a photo-worthy occasion when she does. She much prefers bunloafing, and sometimes stretching/rugging out. Fernando is the flopper of the pair.

      I wouldn’t call it a flop if they are just laying down stretched out. Having said that, if they are doing that regularly then they must be comfortable so I wouldn’t worry. My female doesn’t flop very often compared to my Peanut who is a serial flopper.
