Rabbit Breeds

Rabbits are small cute furry critters found in several parts of the world. There are eight different groups within the rabbit family, including the European rabbit, cottontail rabbits, and the Amami rabbit (an endangered species in Japan). The only rabbit to be widely domesticated is the European rabbit, which has been extensively bred for food and as pets. Rabbits were first widely kept in ancient Rome and they were refined into a wide variety of breeds during and since the middle Ages.

Domesticated rabbits have mostly been bred to be much larger than wild rabbits, although selective breeding has produced rabbits in a wide range of sizes from dwarf to giant.

About American Fuzzy Lop RabbitsAmerican Fuzzy Lop


American Fuzzy Lop Rabbits are raised for wool. Their wool is similar to Angora Rabbits although it is shorter than an Angora’s wool. American Fuzzy Lop Rabbits are a combination of French Angora and Holland Lop Rabbits. Patty Greene-Karl is credited with realizing that the "fuzzy" gene was recessive, mating two Holland Lops carrying this gene resulted in a certain percentage of the offspring (theoretically 25%) with fuzzy wool. Patty decided to develop these rabbits as a new breed, named the American Fuzzy Lop.

About Enderby Island RabbitsEnderby Island


The breed of rabbits known as “Enderby Island” or just “Enderby” are descendants of rabbits taken from Australia and released onto subantarctic Enderby Island in the Auckland Islands, New Zealand, group early in October 1865. Here they engendered a rabbit population which was to remain in isolation for nearly 130 years.

A breeding group of 49 rabbits was removed from the Island in September 1992.

Most Enderby Island rabbits are a distinctive silver-grey in color with an undercoat of dark slate blue. Their heads ...

About Flemish Giant RabbitsFlemish Giant


Flemish Giant Rabbits were developed in the Flanders region of Europe where it was recorded as occurring in Belgium in the sixteenth century.

The adult weight of a Flemish Giant is around 6.4 kilograms for a buck and 6.8 kilograms for a doe. Breeders aim for a long body length with a large rump, and t ...

About German Angora RabbitsGerman Angora


German Angora Rabbits were developed in Germany around 1777 and was a registered breed in the first German rabbit show held in Chemnitz, Germany, in 1885. It was first bred for fiber length, but at the time of the First World War the demand for warm Angora wool increased and the rabbit was then bred for fiber density rather than just length.

German Angora rabbits were then bred aggressively for density and size, and they reached what seems to be their natural limit of fiber production with records of two kilograms plus of ...

About Rex (Standard) RabbitsRex (Standard)


Standard Rex Rabbits originated in France in 1919 as the result of a recessive genetic mutation leading to guard hairs that do not project longer than the undercoat of the fur. This results in a soft coat having a velvety texture. (It is the guard hairs that give the length of coat common to other breeds.)

Hey were first shown publicly at the Paris International Rabbit Show in 1924 and was imported into the United States of America that same year. It was soon recognized as a standard breed in parts of Europe, and today the ...

About Silver Fox RabbitsSilver Fox


Silver Fox rabbits appeared around the 1920s in Great Britain as a sport in a Standard Chinchilla litter. Breeding two sports together produced a litter identical to their parents. This is how it all started. Sports also appeared in litters in France and North America (where it is called the Silver Martin) at about the same time.

At a commercial level, the Silver Fox is bred purely for the fur market (rather than as a meat-producer), with all the value being placed on the pelts with their glossy, dense, silky coat.
