Hi all *not an emergency! I have a 1/ 1/2-2 year old mini rex rabbit. She is not spayed, we just got her a few months ago from a friend who adopted her from Pet Smart. She has been ok, but has recently become aggressive. I used to be able to pick her up and hang out with her on the bed, but she's recently started lunging, growling and biting. Not hard enough to draw blood, but it certainly hurts. Any opinions?

Hello!  There may be behavioural reasons for this.  However, I think it's important that your rabbit sees the vet sooner rather than later, because sometimes signs such as aggression in an unspeyed female may warn of underlying reproductive tract cancer or ovarian change, which can be surprisingly common in unspeyed rabbits.  I don't know what the seasons are doing where you are (this could also be misdirected mating behaviour) but regardless, your vet should be the first port of call.
