Question How big do Lionhead bunnies get?

Hi, I'm new to this site and I am a new bunny owner.. I adopted a LionHead bunny a few days ago. I'm just wondering how big do Lionhead bunnies get? I've read before 5 or less pounds they can get to.. is that right?

Thanks for the help

Hello! Welcome to paw talk

Yes lionhead usually stay pretty small. I believe the breed standard is between 3 and 4 lbs max. I have seen bigger ones though, around 5 or 6 lbs. My lionhead is an adult and 2.5 lbs, so he's just a tiny little guy. He kind of looks bigger though, because of all his hair.

Congrats on your new bunny!

I think the fuzzy head is a dominate trait and that is why you see bigger lion heads, they are crosses. If you adopted yours it may not be pure bred so you just kind of have to wait and see. It will be adoreable at any size though
