1. Pet your bunny gently. Like other pets, petting a bunny can make her relax and comfortable.
2. Take your bunny into your lap slowly. If your bunny struggle, then just let her doing so. Frequently doing it will make her use to the idea. You can also lure her with a treat.
3. Hold your bunny slowly. Lift the rabbit with your hand under his chest while supporting her hind legs with the other hand.Make her facing to your body, place your hand on the rabbit's back and always remember to support her hind legs.

In order to communicate with your bunny and establish a long term relationship with her, you must understand how she behave and what did the behavior means.
- If your rabbit lie flat on the ground- she needs to be petted
- Thumping- It's a danger signal. Maybe they've heard something odd and could be potentially harmful. It also could mean an expression of displeasure.
- Her nose wiggle moderately relax-she is paying attention to something, the faster the wiggling the more agitated she's
- Her nose suddenly stop wiggling-the interest level beyond the highest wiggle rate. Or could be what she observe looks confuse
- Binky (jumping excitedly in the air)-Your rabbit is very happy.
- Periscoping-she is trying to figure out something and to get a better view of surrounding.
- Rabbit licks you-a sign of affectionate. Shows that you could be a trusted companion.
- Bunny suddenly turn back-you've annoyed her. Usually bunny will step away from you, turn her back but looks over it shoulder to make sure you're noticed
- Waggling ears-when you notice your bunny face you, and waggle its ears, she wants to interact with you
People always keep rabbit in a cage, thinking that she like to sleep all the time and don't need much more space.
People always think that small rabbit like dwarf breed and young rabbit don't require much more spaces, as their body is small.
The TRUTH is small rabbits DO need more spaces because they're very active and energetic than the bigger one. You can see the joy of your rabbit running and hoping around, especially the younger one. Just like small kid that is very active and sometimes hard to control.

Before the first photo was taken in 1998, the foot-long Sumatran striped rabbit had not been seen alive since 1972. Only 15 specimens exist in museums, all dating from before 1929. The rabbit is only known to inhabit the forested, mountainous spine of its island namesake. It is listed by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) lists as Critically Endangered.
"This rabbit is so poorly known that any proof of its continued existence at all is great news and confirms the conservation importance of Sumatra's forests," said Colin Poole, director of WCS's Asia Program.
