Monday Mario

I'm just a cute little bunny, nothing to look at here.



Carrot Mouth!!


This is actually the second time this has happened to Mario. Once when he was still living with Chloe (who was pretty much everything Mario isn't) I gave them a 2" x 1" butt of a carrot. It was huge and they had fun chomping down. I noticed later that Mario's entire chin (if bunnies have chins) was orange. It was only hilarious because Chloe, who also had a white mouth, had not a lick of orange color on her. She was quite the little lady and Mario, well, he obviously slobbers a bit when eating.

The orange mouth from the first incident was a little more dramatic (but it occurred pre-digital era and I'm too lazy to scan something now). Will try to get an image of it up later. The first time it happened I thought for sure Mario would be stained for weeks. But he apparently cares about his personal hygiene because both times he had cleaned himself off by the next morning.

Even with carrot-mouth, Mario is still the most handsome and suave bunny I've ever seen!

That looks a bit like berry mouth!!! You sure there wasn't a straw berry in there too????

Maybe Mario wanted to match your skirt!

Carrot mouth is much cuter than green-vege mouth, which happens quite often to Yohji, LOL! Good thing these buns are able to clean themselves up properly after enjoying a meal.

Hef doesn't even eat carrots! Don't shun him from the bunny world but he really doesn't eat them around me, they disapper over night but i suspect he hides them!

When I cut carrots for lunches on Sundays, I always get carrot fingers. Turns out, it's not NEARLY as cut as carrot-mouth on a bunny.

Orange is an attractive color for a bun chin, thinks the bun.
