My little lop was given to me. He does have a tattoo. I can read some of it. There is 3 characters. The first is R second  looks like a H with the top filled in. The third is a A. Any idea what that means?

Show rabbits and meat pen rabbits are given ID tatoos in their left ear. Some shows allow you to choose the 2-5 character ID, some meat shows the ID is assigned. We raise meat pen rabbits for 4H and tatoo all of ours.

Ok, that didn't even occur to me that meat animals would be tattooed as well.  I should have known living on a farm for awhile. This size is obviously for the pet trade.
