Ozimals has produced the latest in pets with their bunnies. Beta testing began earlier in the year and the bunnies went "live" on 9 January 2010. The "bunnies are adorably realistic, professionally sculpted, and full of variety. The six breeds that the bunnies are launching with are actual real life breeds and each one has custom textures that reflect the look and colorings of that breed. The Ozimals bunnies use a true dominant/recessive genetics system modified for SL that will enable you to breed for recessive traits to create the bunnies you want. Each bunny carries a specific percentage of recessive qualities, and you selectively breed those to achieve new colors and even special mutations!
When you breed an Ozimal bunny, you are producing true characteristics like fur, eye color, ear type, and more! Each variation is a separate, hand drawn texture. Those traits will show up as new features on your bunny unlike other breedable animals where RGB colors (plus sometimes glow and shiny) are the only ways to tell your animals apart. Ozimals are truly the Next Generation of AI breeding animals!"
Complete bunny starter kits are available at the Ozimals Main Store. Each kit contains two nests, one male and one female. The owner has complete control over when the bunnies are born. Clicking the nest enables you to birth the bunnies. Once the bunnies are born, you must follow a series of steps to set their preferences. This is all explained in the information provided in the starter kits. They require food and water. The bunnies hop around like mad when they are born and their energy levels are high. Over time, their energy level decreases, ultimately to level 0%, at which time they sleep for 8 hours, renewing their energy. When they sleep, they dream....of sunny meadows, rainbows, bunny love and, of course, carrots. These images appear in dream clouds above their heads.
Ozimals bunnies are born in a nest made of hay and the mothers fur. They are very tiny when born but grow quickly. Owners may hold their bunnies and pet them, and this increases the bunny's level of happiness. Bunnies cannot be bred until they are 4 days old. Once they reach that age, their level of love will gradually increase, as they are preparing for breeding. In order to breed, each bunny must have more than 25% energy, be fed and watered, as well as happy. When the bunnies reach 100% love, they are ready. Breeding happens quickly and not in the way one would expect. They don't even need to touch, they simply need to be within 10m of each other. Very quickly the mother produces a nest. Each nest contains one bunny.For the latest price list: http://blog.ozimals.com/2010/
