Bringing home the newest member of the family can be really exciting, but how do you choose the best rabbit who would thrive given your unique lifestyle? With 49 American Rabbits Breeders Association (ARBA) recognized breeds plus various mixed breeds around, it can seem overwhelming.
Let’s look at the characteristics, traits, and lifestyle requirements of each rabbit breed so that you, as their future human, can give them the best life possible.
The Holland Lop is easily recognized among rabbit breeds because of their signature drooped lop ears and bulldogged face. These traits make them one of the most popular rabbit breeds in the world.
Originating from Netherlands, the Holland Lop is a compact rabbit with a rollbacked type of fur, which comes in very diverse colors. It is one of the five lopped-ear rabbit breeds and is considered the smallest among them. Like their lop-eared cousins, these bunnies are prone to ear infections, what with their ears having more folds, not to mention greater contact with the ground.
