RabbitGeek.com lists the rarest 16 breeds as of 2010, based on American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) registrations, in order of rarity, as:

4 Beveren
5 American
6 Satin Angora

8 Lilac
9 Silver
10 American Sable
11 Belgian Hare
12 American Chinchilla
13 Rhinelander
14 Creme d'Argent
15 Silver Fox
16 Palomino
