It should have a fine, silky texture, very dense, smooth and level, firm and plush-like with a lustrous sheen. They are well-proportioned, with a graceful carriage, a bold broad head with erect ears, a dewlap (not excessively large) and well-rounded quarters on strong hind legs. (D374)
  • Rex rabbits are generally about 3 kg (6.6 lb), which is a good size for a pet rabbit; they can sometimes be sensitive. (B622.3.w3)
