Known as the Velveteen Rabbit!
Mini Rex rabbits are a small, compact breed that has a very plush undercoat and extremely soft, velvety feeling fur, which comes in a wide variety of colors. The recessive gene that causes this variation in fur causes the hair-strands to stand straight up, rather than lying flat against the body, as other breeds’ fur does. They average about 4-4.5 lbs and tend to have a calm, easy-going nature,
Furthermore, due to their small size, Mini Rex is a good breed for those who are not other-wise experienced in raising and/or showing rabbits. They are generally low-maintenance, make good pets, and are very popular at shows.
