About Rex (Standard) Rabbits



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 overseas following is large with many breeders.

Standard Rex Rabbits are bred mainly for its unique short plush coat, which is approximately 13 millimeters in length, and has the feel of velour fabric. To the touch a Rex coat is very silky and dense over the whole body. This type of fur stands out amongst that of other rabbits.

The body shape of the Rex is very well proportioned and it is a medium boned rabbit. It has a graceful carriage and round quarters with a broad head. The adult weight is around 2.72 to 3.62 kilograms.
