Perlfee rabbits originated in Germany they are only found in blueish-gray color, with dark, light and medium shades accepted, medium is preferred, the belly and around the eyes should be lighter in color.
In the early 1900s in Germany the pelts of Siberian Flying Squirrels were valuable, and local rabbit breeders crossed various other rabbit breeds in an attempt to create a competing pelt. The result was the Perlfee rabbit.
The fur of the Perlfee is silky smooth, dense, and luxurious with long protective hairs (called Guard Hairs). The guard hairs have both dark gray and light gray tips giving these beautiful bunnies a pearlescent appearance where they seem to change color as you move around the rabbit.
