Rex Rabbits are known for their plush-like fur which feels like velvet. The fur tends to come in four basic colours, brown, black, rusty, and white with brown and black spots, known as, the Spotted Rex. They are a large rabbit weighing around 3 - 3.5kg (6 - 8lbs). The Rex Rabbit makes a wonderful pet and is good with young children as it is a very well natured rabbit and has a lot of charisma. They are particularly maternal and have been known to mother other rabbits. They can live from 5-6 years and are very friendly if properly cared for.
