Additional Information:

  • In the rough-coated rex rabbits, the fur is dense, soft and carried at right angles to the body so it looks the same whatever angle it is viewed from. The undercoat is about 2.54 cm (one inch) long, and the whole body is covered with fine, white-tipped curly hairs. Overall it appears "bright with lustrous sheen." The body is compact and the ears small, neat and erect. (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)
  • Rex rabbits are "spirited but good natured" and can be good pets. (B619.10.w10)
