Learn about 60+ Rabbit Breeds!

Rabbits are wonderful and intelligent animals, but with more than 60 breeds of them in existence, we understand that narrowing down the vast amount of choices that are available is very important.  For instance, if you are interested in a giant snuggly lop-eared rabbit, you should have a basic understanding of the differences between various breeds of rabbits that have lopped ear carriage, such as the French Lop and English Lop. After all, each and every single breed is different in size, what they require, and in what their personalities are. Or maybe you find yourself drawn to large rabbits, but aren’t fond of the lopped ears, so a Flemish Giant may be more fitting for your taste. For these reasons, we are here to help!

In the following pages of this section, we will explain the some of the distinct traits in the most popular rabbit breeds. Furthermore, we’ll give you information in regard to learning what is considered show-quality traits in each of these rabbit breeds.  We will go over tips regarding which ones make the best pets for small children, such as the Holland Lop.  As well, we will cover which ones require the most amount of space, such as a Continental Giant; which ones are most timid, as is the Polish rabbit or the Netherland Dwarf, and which breeds require more grooming, like a Lionhead rabbit.  If specifically marked fur patterns catch your eye, perhaps you would be interested in a Dutch rabbit.  Another option may be a rabbit with fur that is velvety-soft.  In that case, a Mini-Rex breed would be right up your alley.
