Rabbits do have natural shedding cycles where they shed a lot of hair. This usually occurs every 6 months or so. Finding a lot of hair in these situations can be normal. This shedding usually lasts about 2 weeks.
If your rabbit continues to shed for another week, I recommend that you take him in to see your veterinarian. I recommend that you check him daily for any bald spots, sores, or red areas on his skin.
