This is our oldest resident MARSHMALLOW who is close to 10 years old now.  She is a Netherland Dwarf breed of rabbit. 

She was a QLD magician's rabbit.  She grew too old for the magic act so her owner surrendered her to The Rabbit Rescue Sanctuary.  In Queensland the magicians are allowed up to two rabbits. Because she grew too old for the show the magician wanted to replace her with a younger rabbit which she did by buying one from a pet shop over the QLD border in Tweed Heads. 

We figured that MARSHMALLOW had done enough to service people with all her life spent entertaining children and adults so we provided her a permanent residence status at the Rabbit Sanctuary. 

She spends her days mostly sleeping and lazing about.  Other rabbits show great respect for her as if they know she is old and needs her peace and quiet to live out her days.
