      I found this on top of my bunny’s ear today.  She isn’t constantly itching nor has she lost her appetite.  She also doesn’t have any crust or flakes inside of her ear.  I don’t know how this formed on her ear.  I tried to gently remove it and I found them to be very thin flakes.  A little fur came off with it.  I stopped trying to remove it after removing two small pieces because I didn’t want to hurt her.  Is this a symptom of ear mites?  This the only “sign” though and everything else does not apply to her…

      That amount could just be from natural fur shedding honestly. I’d continue to monitor to see if it gets worse but it doesn’t “scream” mites to me at this stage.

      It does look a little crusty in the picture. Ear mite crusts tend to not form on the outside of the ear until an infestation is really bad. Is there any fur loss? It could be ringworm or something.

        I haven’t seen any drastic hair loss.  Only the usual individual fur flying like my other two bunnies.  The crust/scab is gone, and she hasn’t grown anything new.  She also acts normally.  I’m not sure what it was, but I think it’s not serious.
