Silver Fox

silver-fox-rabbit-breedThe Silver Fox, known for it’s docile and gentle nature, is a large breed with adults weighing between 9-12lbs.  Their fur is one of the most attractive and unusual features of the breed. It is extremely dense and 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length. When the fur is stroked from tail to head, it will stand straight up until stroked in the opposite direction. This trait is found in no other breed, and greatly resembles the pelt of the silver fox of the Arctic.  The silvering of the fur starts to show around 4 weeks of age, and takes about 4 months to complete.  Adult rabbits can be heavily silvered or lightly silvered, with the breed standard falling somewhere in the middle (Livestock Conservancy).
