Binkies !

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, in this case a video can show you what a binky is if you haven’t seen one before.  This little bunny has all kinds of variety of binkies down.

I don’t know who coined the term binky for these leaping bunny moves, but it has the right lighthearted happy feel to match the act.  Bunnies will binky as they run and play.  I have seen our rabbits use them to change course in mid-air.  When they touch down, they will be running off in a completely different direction.  I have seen them do twists and turns and click their paws together before they come back down.  It is not only a bunny having a lot of fun, but is so athletic and acrobatic!

It is another one of those unexpected facets of rabbits.  With their proportionately heavy looking backsides, who expects them to be aerodynamic like this?
