It's hard to tell in the photo, but apparently this baby bunny has two noses. The dwarf rabbit lives at a pet store in Milford, Connecticut. From the Connecticut Post:
Gregg Dancho, director of the Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, said there's usually two reasons for such deformities.
"It's mostly genetic," he said. "Most of the dwarf bunnies pet stores sell are bred for sale. There's a lot of in-breeding going on because the breeders are looking to produce them en mas."
But the anomaly can also be caused by something in the environment.
"Maybe the parents got into poison or pesticides used to control pests," he said.
But Dancho said people interested in buying a dwarf rabbit or any animal as a pet should really think about what they are doing and not buy on impulse. "When that animal comes home you will have to take care of it," he said.
"No fooling: This bunny has two noses
