Ozimals Bunny

Ozimals went into closed beta in September 2009, creating a buzz of excitement on the grid with talk of the upcoming bunnies.  After going through an open beta phase they were launched in January 2010 with great success.  There were the first realistic looking breedable, with a variety of true coats are well as the more fanciful.  I would consider that they were also the first big ticket product, creating record breaking sales prices that continued for some time.
