Thanks for the info,wishmistress, I don't know too much about this 'papillomo virus' stuff. It looks painful for this little bunny.

@native, from sit 'papilloma-virus . com'............keep in mind this is for 'canines', but probably similar..... "Most often it is transmitted through direct contact with other dogs that have the canine papilloma virus but also by contact with virus from the infected environment. The incubation period is between 1-2 months. The canine papilloma virus can be transmitted only through infected dogs. The animals are not contagious to other animals or person. To become infected, the dog must have an "immature" immune system, and that primary infection occurs in newborn babies or young." "In most cases there is no need for treatment and we just have to wait for them to disappear themselves" Poor little guy...maybe there's hope for him.

Poor little thing..Please someone catch it and treat it before this virus affects the entire rabbit/animal population that is vital to our eco system.
