When a Pet Rabbit "Binkies," They Do It from Pure Joy

If your see your rabbit binky, it means you are doing something right as a bunny owner.

Sometimes a bunny will just leap into the air for no reason. This surprisingly isn't an involuntary muscle spasm. No, it's a rabbit binky and the bunny is doing it out of sheer joy of being alive.

A rabbit binky is when they jump and twist, sometimes in both directions one after another, before landing. They can even do this impressive move while running, which is also a hilarious treat. Bunny binkies are a common house rabbit behavior that express his happiness and comfort.

A half-binky is when the rabbit does a little head flick which also demonstrates his happiness in rabbit body language.

If your indoor rabbit tears around the house binkying, doing half twists and 180-degree leaps, it means you are doing something right as a pet owner. Your bunny is happy and not afraid to show it! You can even reciprocate this motion, especially if you have long hair, to show your bunny that you too, are happy!

Go ahead, speak some bunny language by leaping around the living room with your pet. We won't judge.
