Ear mites

This photo shows the typical appearance of a rabbit's ear that is infested with ear mites (Psoroptes cuniculi). Microscopically the flakes of debris are full of motes. They can just be seen with the naked eye. The ear is very itchy and sore. Affected rabbits shake their heads repetitively.
