Make sure you keep the wound clean...rabbits can get abcesses easily, and also depending on the size of the wound, insects can infect it as well. Keep your bunny and most importantly the cage VERY VERY clean until the wound is completely healed. Call a vet, make an appointment if you (or your parents) can. Good luck.

I would take your rabbit to a vet to have it checked. Do you have other pets in your household? One of my guinea pigs (Twinkie) was bit by her long time cagemate. They always got along and I never guessed the other would bite her. I saw a small puncture wounds that looked like teeth marks on the bridge of her nose. I cleaned the wound but she still developed an abcess. It took multiple vet visits and a lot of care and time to clear it up and get it to heal. I separated them so it wouldn't happen again.

Please ask your parents to take your pet to a Vet.

Depends on where you live. If it's been two days, chances are good it wasn't anything that's going to kill your rabbit. But you might want to have a vet take a look.

More evidence would be needed in order to determine what may have bit your rabbit.
