Mini Rex were derived from the Rex rabbit. Their unique, dense, plush, velvet-like fur, was caused by a mutation seen in wild rabbits 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.
Their small size, plush coat and friendly personalities 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 been very popular with exhibitors ever since. It weighs 3.5 to 4.5 pounds when fully grown. Short and rather close coupled, it is moderately well filled with flesh. The ideal length of its fur is 5/8 inch, and is to have a lustrous appearance, good body, and a plush-like effect which offers a distinct springy resistance to the touch.

Himalayans are very unique rabbits. They are small rabbits, with very long, trim bodies. Their body color is white, with dark “points.” They have an egg-shaped marking on the nose, dark ears, legs, and tail. The points can be black, chocolate, blue, or lilac. Himalayans have red eyes.
The Himalayan is one of the oldest rabbit breeds we have today. They have been around for so long, we are not sure when they first appeared, or where they originated. Though some say they are indeed from the Himalayan mountain area, records of these rabbits are found is several regions of the old world. Himalayans may have been brought to the United States during the Belgian Hare Boom in the early 1900’s. Himalayans are not only one of the most unique breeds recognized in the U.S., but also one of the oldest.
Himalayans are known for their easy-going and docile temperament. This coupled with their small size makes them an excellent choice for children wanting to start raising and showing rabbits.
Himalayans are popular both as show rabbits and as pets.
