Wonky the rabbit is nicknamed ‘unicorn’ because of the ear in the middle of his head

Meet Wonky – the unicorn rabbit.

He got his nickname because of the unusual position of one of his ears.

It sits right in the middle of his forehead and sometimes points upwards, making it look like a unicorn horn, according to an RSPCA worker at the Milton Keynes & North Bucks branch, where he currently lives.

RSCPA staff member Carol Spindler said: ‘He has such an unusual look and it’s amazing how his ear flips up and stands upright on his head – just like a unicorn horn!’

The affectionate and friendly rabbit, Wonky – who is four years old – is keen on being stroked but is not a fan of being picked up.

Wonky arrived at the rescue centre because his previous owner was no longer able to look after the lop-eared rabbit.

He was looking for a new home and somewhere safe and warm to play, before Christmas – but after he went viral it looks like he might be in luck.

Posting earlier today, the RSPCA centre said they had been inundated with requests and he had now been reserved.

‘This lovable boy really deserves a home where he’ll get lots of attention and treats,’ said Carol.

Staff added on Facebook: ‘Wonky has been reserved! He’s become quite an internet sensation and we’ve been inundated with applications for him.

‘We’ve responded to the best match after searching through those applications and we’d like to thank everyone for their enquiries.’

Good luck in your new home Wonky! We’re crossing our fingers that it goes to plan.
