Cottontail Rabbit



Has anyone seen rabbit ears like this? He is at least 2 months old( that is how long my mom has been watching "little bunny no ears") All the other rabbits in the area have big healthy looking ears. He doesn't react to cars coming down the road as quickly as the other rabbits so we wonder if he is also deaf. What could cause this deformity?
