    Can someone please help me identify what exactly this is? I have searched the internet high and low and for the life of me can't figure it out. So this growth is protruding out of the back leg of one of our rabbits. It started out as an open sore, then a scab, then it's as if the scab just kept growing into this stick- like growth. It just keeps growing longer and longer. It is very stiff and apparently tender as the bunny jumps at the lightest touch to it. Any ideas?? I'm hesitant to just clip it off not knowing what it is...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is it bothering him? Scratching at it?

    Are you sure it's not just fur and poop?
    Doesn't quite look like papilloma virus.
