Scabs are shells that protect the skin that you scraped, cut, itched, or many other reasons.

i think they became a tinch closer because edith frank (annes frank mother)was going to be transported because she didnt have scabes like anne did or her sister (margot frank)so when they were getting in the truck she yelled that she is staying with her daughter and anne looked at her mother with tears coming out of her eyes and though she was brave for saying that and then her mother looked at her and anne smiled and her mother smiled back

What causes ferret balding?

There are a few different reasons why your rabbit might lose her fur:First Answer: If your rabbit is losing fur and you can't seem to find where it is then she is just pulling out her extra fur from winter don't worry about that it's normal. However if she is putting her fur in holes and small corners that means usually that she is having a baby/babies. If you want to know any more signs then check her stomach for any small bumps that is another sign. Remember if she isn't putting it in corners or in holes then she is just getting rid of extra fur.Second Answer: More than likely if she is just 'losing' fur she is moulting. Or she could have fur mites, but if she has been with a buck she is probably pregnant and making (or trying to make) a nest.To summarise, your rabbit might be:Moulting or losing her winter furPregnant (if she's female)Fur mites or other parasites or skin problemsOther reasons could be:Stress, boredom, or illnessFalse Pregnancy (if she's female)About moulting: If your rabbit is moulting you should brush her. When rabbits eat too much fur, they can get sick. (Rabbits can't vomit fur balls like cats can, so it can get stuck in their digestive tract.)About stress and boredom: Stress and boredom lead to low-quality of life and even illness in rabbits. You should do what you can to minimise stress in your rabbit's life. See the related question below for details and helpful links.About parasites: If your rabbit has parasites or other skin problems it needs to see the vet with experience and knowledge in rabbits. Some cat/dog treatments are toxic for rabbits, so you can't just pick something off the shelf.About false pregnancy: These are stressful for rabbits. If you aren't actively breeding your rabbit, you should spay her. This is only one among many good reasons to spay/neuter rabbits.See the related questions and links below for more information about all of the above conditions!
