Bunya in the chew tunnel

Earlier, Ethel demonstrated gnawing on the chew tunnel from the outside (here).

It's like how different people eat their Reese's Peanut Butter cups. In this clip, Bunya chews the tunnel from the inside.

I love is the way bunnies chew. They go at it like little motors, but partly side-to-side. You can see the slightly bemused and mischievous expression that inspired some cartoonist to make Bugs Bunny's tag line: "Nyaaaah, What's up, Doc?" That cartoonist must have seriously studied real rabbits before beginning to draw the character.


  1. I love the mischief that buns get up to!

    1. I don't know if I agree with that 100% of the time, but at least Bunya's chewing what he's supposed to be chewing.

  2. He's being quite delicate about, chewing, I'm not chewing, what gave you that idea (crunch crunch). More of a careful hand sculpting sort of chew, Scamp's more of a power saw sort of chewer (vroom vroom gnaw gnaw oops took a bit much off!).
