The Belgian Hare, which has its roots in the 18th century is one of the oldest breeds. The Belgian Hare thrives outdoors, where it has plenty of space and hay.

The Blanc de Hotot is a French breed.
Its “black eyeliner”, which contrasts with its white body, makes it easy to spot. These bunnies are great with children and pets, as long as their personalities mature. It is possible to bond with your bunnies by spending time outside and brushing them regularly.
The Cal is a cross between a Chinchilla and a Himalayan. Their dense coat allows them to spend time outdoors as well as indoors (including in the snow). The Californian is bred to show off, but it loves to play with and cuddle with its human family.
A Checkered Giant, which weighs in at around 13 pounds, is a great pet for seniors or couples looking for companionship. Although this breed is more independent than other breeds, it is also less affectionate and curious. You can identify a Checkered Giant from its butterfly-like markings on its nose.
The Dutch are one of the most loved breeds. They were developed in England around the 1830s. This energetic rabbit needs to socialize, as it can get depressed if it spends too long in its cage. Children are welcome to take care of this rabbit because of its friendly nature.
English Lop’s laid-back,
friendly personality earned it the nickname “The Dog of the Rabbit World.” This unique feature is also a crowning jewel. It requires some maintenance. They should have their ears checked regularly and their nails kept short to avoid injury.
After its show rabbit experience, the English Spot was able to adapt to living as a household pet. The English Spot is a great addition to any family. It should spend at least 2 hours in their cage, allowing them to move around and stretch.9Flemish Giant Rabbit KRITHNARONGGETTY IMAGES
