        Sorry about the title, I just don’t know how to word my question but I’m gonna try…. You know how humans are found apart from their finger prints and dogs for their noses? How do you tell bunnies apart using this way of identification?

          I dont think you routinely can tell buns apart with any certainty unless they’ve a microchip or an ear tattoo. I’m sure bun DNA-profiling is possible, but I dont think its in high demand. Even show rabbits arent very expensive. Insurance companies tend to go by fur color and markings if the rabbit doesnt have a chip or a tattoo.

            Hmm… I wonder if you could go by whisker follicle pattern. It is used to identify individuals in a variety of other mammals. Probably wouldn’t be easy on certain colors though.

              I was an intern at a zoo this summer and we identify Koalas and our monkey species with fingerprints. If someone messes up a tag and we all don’t agree which koala they are, we stamp their hand in pet paint and send it into a lab. The lab will tell us which koala they are, as we get their fingerprints when they arrive.
