What is the best type of brush for grooming?  My mini lop is shedding way too much.  I've just been pulling his loose hairs out with my hand, but that doesn't seem to get all of it.

I'm new to bunnies but from what I've read a soft bristle brush works best.

I think I remember using a baby comb for my bun-buns... I used to hate the shedding!

Definitely a soft-bristle or baby brush. I use a baby brush on my bun and she doesn't mind it, but her old owner used to use a wire brush for dogs and she HATED that, since it would snag the skin. I also run a baby wipe over her back after brushing to catch some of the extra loose fur.
