Yeah, mom and daughter look so alike that sometimes I can't even tell which is which at first! They both live in the same cage, so that makes it worse. Taikai just has a little shorter ears and a little chubbier face. That is really the only difference. They even act a lot alike, though Sotoumi doesn't whine as much as her mom does when being pet. Though Taikai likes being pet, even if she pretends otherwise, because if you stop she puts her head back under your hand. LOL.
They actually are not that big. All three are mini rex, and Monkey is the biggest at about 4 1/2 pounds. Taikai and Sotoumi are right around 4 pounds. Nothing like the 15+ pound french lops I used to have. LOL.
