Whether your dog or cat person, I think we can all agree that fluffy bunny rabbits are the best. And with Easter coming up, what better excuse than to celebrate the most huggable, flopsy, mopsy cotton tails in the insta-verse? From lovely Lionheads to adorable Angora’s, we’ve trawled instagram for the very cutest (and most photogenic) bunny rabbits out there. Now, hop to it!
I had a dream that Wally was diving and swimming around the bathtub like a seal. It was an excellent dream. I'll have to buy him some water wings. ? (Due to concerns from followers, please note that according to rabbit.org, "Although a rare bunny may grow up swimming in the family pool and going on camping trips where she paddles around in the lake, the vast majority of rabbits do not relish getting wet. Even an occasional bath is quite stressful to the average rabbit, and is not recommended. … [Particularly when sick] a wet rabbit can quickly become hypothermic.")
WALLY & MOLLY
Wally the English Angora rabbit shot to fame last year on account of his unbelievably massive, fluffy ears. Well, it’s not so much that the ears are massive as the rest of Wally has had a little trim. Either way, that is one seriously spectacular hairstyle. He and his owner Molly live in Massachusetts. Follow them if you think these ears would cheer you up on a daily basis.
LIFE OF MILL
Milla and Stella are two huggable house rabbits living free-range (cage free) in Sweden. Partial to the odd accessory, including floral crowns, bows and even sunglasses, these beautiful bunnies know how to strike a pose for the camera!
Possibly the most famous bunny instagram account (848k followers and counting), Bunny Mamma captured the hearts of bunny lovers all over the world with her two rescue rabbits Eddy and Rambo.

Check it out on his YouTube Channel, the BunnyPigiShow.
IO AND KILI
What is it with the Swedish and their stylish Scandinavian house rabbits? Io and Kili are a male and female pair that could be straight out of a woodland fairytale. Partial to some dark leafy greens, Io and Kili love nothing more than good munch followed by a warm snuggle. BUNNY LOVE.

Do you or have you owned a bunny rabbit? Rabbits make great pets, but they are still a big responsibility and can live for up to 12 years. Their needs are still largely misunderstood by many owners so before hopping off to get one, make sure you check out this information from the Rabbit Welfare Association.
