A baby bunny born in Connecticut has two noses.

The bizarre bunny showed up at Purr-Fect Pets Inc. in Milford last week in a delivery of 6-week-old dwarf rabbits.

Tom Fomenko Sr. said he never seen anything like double rhinal rabbit in 25 years in the business. The bunny eats, drinks and hops around like the rest of the litter.

"It makes it doubly cute when it crinkles and wiggles both," Tiana Nieves, an employee at the store, told the Connecticut Post.

The deformity could be the result of too much inbreeding, Beardsley Zoo director Gregg Dancho said.

Another possible cause of the fluffy freakishness could be its parents' exposure to pesticides or poisons, Dancho said.

Store workers have begun a naming contest with Cyrano de Bergerac and Deuce among the contenders so far.
