Baby Bunny With Hydrocephalus (water on the brain)

This was a baby bunny I had born in my barn several years ago (back in 2003, I believe) that was born with a strange looking head. It had a large (as can be seen in the pics below) bubble looking thing on it's head under it's skin. When the bubble was touched, it was soft and squishy, which is what made us think it was Hydrocecphalus. The bubble continued to get bigger as the baby got bigger. It ended up being so big that the baby could hardly lift it's heard. It died around 2 weeks old, if I remember correctly.
