Definitely better than a dead bunny cam.

BUNNEH!

That's pretty cool.

An adorable little girl walked into a pet shop and asked, "Excuse me, do you have any rabbits here?"

"We do" the sales representative answered.

Leaning down to her eye level he asked, "Did you want a white rabbit or would you rather have a soft, fuzzy black rabbit?"

The little girl shrugged and said, "I don't think my python really cares".

My theory is that the reason nobody is commenting on this thread is one of the following:
  1. We are all chatting on the default chat app that shows up next to the video feed.
  2. There isn't anything of substance to say about bunnies.
Looking at the prevalence of the "LOLPOOP" and "LOLPENIS" content in the chat box, the second option is more likely.

As someone who has sat in the same room as a rabbit all day (and do most days) , I can tell you, there's very little difference between a BunnyCam and a still photo.

Winston Montgomery Mini-Lop, Esq respectfully disagrees, sir!

Bunnies are marvelously personable little critters. Every year, way too many buns get bought for Easter, then dumped on rescue organizations (such as HRN)...if they're lucky. They can be taught to jump on command (or just beg incessantly, in my case). They chew/gnaw with a side-to-side motion, which distinguishes them from rodents; in fact, they're basically tiny little fast-breeding horses. They don't need to wiggle their noses to smell, but do it anyway; you can even get them to imitate you with some practice.

They're mostly active at morning and dusk, but will adapt around your schedule. What this means is sitting on your chest begging for breakfast in the morning, and sprinting wildly around the apartment in the evening.

Also, the local vet techs are terrified of our little four pound girl. It's hilarious.

...nobody is commenting on this thread...

My sister and I had a pair of lops, mine was called Butterscotch. One day my sister's, in a craven and unprovoked attack, bit me through my good sweatpants which had HOT DOG emblazoned down the side and drawing blood. Shortly after we gave them to my uncle who had a rabbit pen and small chicken coop in his backyard.
I think he ate them.
I began wearing jeans shortly after.

Bunnies are marvelously personable little critters.

Our rabbit pretty much limits her interaction to pooping and destroying stuff. Our previous rabbit was a remarkably engaging creature, but generalizing about rabbits is as fruitful as generalizing about dogs, cats or people. Some are wonderful, some are inoffensive and boring, some are dicks.

I think a co-worker of mine will like this, too. (It turns out "Cocoapuff" is not an official bunny name. I'm going to have to tell her to add it to the List....)

I really wanted to come up with a good, "Oh, so your rabbits are [blank]" snap, but I couldn't think up a good one. So let me just say that "Pooping and destroying stuff" is a pretty powerful endorsement for rabbits. Or, if not that, a pretty awesome phrase to be applied to your allies and enemies alike.

Oh, also, to make a totally insubstantial comment; I'm pretty sure those bunnies are suffering from a severe deficiency of hugs.

Awwww! I saw one little guy who seemed pretty hyper...

Rabbits are smelly, vicious little bastards. Never understood why people think they are cute. Yeah a bunny is cute, but so are nearly all young animals. They rapidly grow out of this phase and become bite-happy shit factories that startle too easily.

Don't get me wrong, I don't begrudge any animal its existance, but they really don't make great pets in my experience, especially for kids. This leads to lots of them being bought and then abandoned shortly after they start seeming more like giant fluffy rats. Cleaning their habitat is a real chore for not much payoff in the companionship department.

I like the cam though, can't smell 'em through the Internet which makes them a little more personable.

(Unrelated: young rabbit is pretty tasty)

Is this where we share hassenpfeffer recipes?

Excellent! I used to have a webcam on my faithful pet rabbit, Baron von Floppy Ears, so i could look in on him whilst at work.

I sit and watch the bunnycam. Meanwhile, my three rabbits watch me forlornly, hoping for their morning papaya. They know I'm cheating on them. Cheating on them with my eyes. But they can do nothing about it. For while their noses are wiggly and their butts fluffy, they are just rabbits.

Live bunny cam? Playboy is becoming so predictible.

Where's my live sacrificial lamb cam?

Seriously, though, I am always a great fan of CUTE ANIMALS cams.

I am rather torn between thinking "ooh, bunnies!" and "mmm, lunch."

Heh, targeted advertising. I get an Edinburgh-based pest control firm's advert below the video stream.

Cute bunny, I "bunny sat" for a couple months once and it was awesome except for the poop which got everywhere.
