View Full Version : Shaved rodents anyone?

11-12-2000, 01:30 AM
I just now have some up with something I Must try.
I want to capture a small rodent, say rabbit sized, and shave it bald. Of course I would use ether, or a similar substance(on the rabbit) to induce sleep as it would be rather stressfull(for the rabbit).

I would relase Mr. Bunnyrabbit back into the wild, after taking pictures to ensure that the rabbit will not contact the authorities.

I dont know why I want to do this, but it seems that it would be rather funny.

And for the record, I do NOT use drugs, and I am NOT drunk nor do I drink.

Dude, with desires like that, you don't NEED alcohol or drugs!

Thats what people tell me.

FTR I am NOT going to place said rabbit anywhere near my anus.

Just what the world needs;

A hairless hare.

You Norskies really need to get out more often.

PS: Be sure to knit Mr. Bun a sweater when you're done.

Yup, had you confused with Flodnak.

Gotta lay of the late night posts.

However, I still maintain that you have dangerous quantities of spare time. Why not post a recipe for rabbit at my cooking thread or perhaps, a bit of smilie art at my gallery thread? That will Hoover up some of your extra moments in a jiff.

If you search through the following thread, you'll find and animal that is described occasionally as a "baldcat," "shaved weasel," or "naked wombat."

If you ever see it in real life, be gentle with it. It's kind of jumpy.

And what would shaving a rodent accomplish? Anything besides the fact that the poor little critter would be freezing to death?

You're a goofy man. :^P

Why thank you.

I woke up this afternoon after work(bad long slow boring day) and my desire to shave a rodent bald had all but vanished, I still think it would be a riot, but i dont think Ill ever do it.

I second porcupine's suggestion to go look at the naked mole-rat cam. Or just do a web search for naked mole rats. I like naked mole rats. I also had to post to this thread due to what I wrote under "interests" in my profile.

12-23-2000, 03:45 PM

The first animal I ever tried to raise was a little wild bunny. I called him Mr. Bun. He died.

Let me follow up my last post by saying that I do much better with my patients now.

Thought I would bump this one back up to the top. I have no idea what I was thinking at the time.

Take your medication daily!

You are silly! If I meet you at a dopefest- I owe you a drink!

06-03-2001, 12:12 AM
What? Isn't ANYONE going to jump in here and say that rabbits aren't rodents?

shaved lagomorphs, anyone?

Rabbits aren't rodents silly fnord! Rabbits are for lagomorphs!

06-03-2001, 01:11 AM
fnord, if you look at the Answers and Questions thread, you'll see that you got a reference.


06-03-2001, 01:27 AM
Ha ha. that's pretty funny...

06-03-2001, 10:21 PM
I had no idea that rabbits were not rodents.

Oh and Wonko, with an OP like that do you really think I need booze? Who knows I might break into the local zoo and try to shave a capybara (pretty sure that one's a rodent) or glue hair onto a hairless mole rat.

I drink single malt scotch, FTR. :D

I think the capybara is the largest known rodent.
I guess I owe you a double...

Capybara, eh? How big is it?

::imaginging a gigantic, gargantuan fluffy gerbil roaming the streets of New York:: ::evil cackling:: Not that I want to know for myself...I...just have a rodent...fetish- er, interest. :o

Apparently, when angora rabbits shed their coats they can go bald around the back and belly.

Excuse me. -wipes away tears- Whew. Made my day.

Here's some info on capybaras:

One of those should have enough hair for dozens of naked mole-rats, if you can do them all before security shows up.

That is singularly the weirdest animal...of the day at least.

I'm sure I could set it loose in town, and soon make it do my bidding. Unshaved of course. I bet if I get a pregnant capybara, I can unleash swarms of them. Eventually. (Btw- anyone else really disturbed by the picture of the capybara in a baby bib?)

06-08-2001, 12:00 PM
I wasnt till you said something and gave me a visual.

Now I cant get the idea of swarms of baby capybaras out of my head.
