TYPES OF PETS 3 Lion Head The Lionhead rabbit is one of the newer breeds of rabbit and was recognised by the British Rabbit Council (BRC) in 2002, in all known colours and patterns. Imported into the US in the late 1990s, the Lionhead rabbit is currently undergoing the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) evaluation process, as a new breed of rabbit. Distinguishable features are the 'mane' of wool around their head which is similar to that of a male lion, hence the name. The slightly rounded and broad head is set close to the body with short thick upright ears, 2"-3" (5cm-7.5cm) in length, and a well developed muzzle. This is a small rabbit with a fully grown weight of usually between 2.5 and 3.5 lbs (1.13 -1.59 kg) and not exceeding 3 3/4lbs (1.70 kg). Ideal fully grown weight 3.5 lbs (1.59 kg) Average lifespan of the Lionhead rabbit is 7 to 9 years
TYPES OF PETS 4 Netherland Drawf The Netherland Dwarf has a small compact body, short neck and a compact broad head with curved profile and a rounded face. The coat is short and soft and the ears are small, erect, rounded at the tips and just under a quarter of an inch (5cm) in length. A really cute looking rabbit, they look infantile even in full adulthood. They are the smallest of the dwarf breeds with a fully grown weight that can range from 1.5lb to 2.6lb (700 to 1.2 kilos ). In temperament they are timid in nature but lively, and can be highly strung and become stressed easily. This particular breed is one of the most popular pet rabbit breeds. The modern day Netherland Dwarf is a gentle, curious, pet and if handled correctly and often, they will enjoy human companionship.

TYPES OF PETS 7 Mini Rex Mini Rex is a rabbit breed derived from in France in the late 19th century. The Rex mutation is recessive and causes the hair to protrude outwards from the body, instead of lying flat, and the guard hairs to be shortened to the length of the undercoat. The small size, plush coat and friendly personalities of mini rex rabbits make them one of the most popular rabbit breeds in the United States. They were first recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) in 1988, and have been very popular with exhibitors ever since. They weigh from 3.5 to 4.5 pounds when fully grown. They are short and rather close coupled. The ideal length of fur is 5/8 inch, and the fur is to have a lustrous appearance, good body, and a plush- like effect which offers a distinct springy resistance to the touch.
