    Upright Ears - Normal Fur - Solid Black or Blue

    American
    (Rare) - Adult weight 9-12 pounds - back arch starts back of the shoulders, running to a point forward of the hips ("mandolin" shape), looked at from the top, the body tapers slightly from hips to shoulders.

    Beveren (Rare) - Adult weight 8-12 pounds - also "mandolin" shaped, like the American. The Beveren has "rollback" fur about 1¼"-1½" long - if you stroke the fur "backward" (tail to head), it returns slowly to a flat position.

    Havana - a smaller rabbit, adult weight 4½-6½ pounds. The back is curved evenly from the base of the ears to a peak at the hips, then smoothly down to the tail. The neck is short and the head broad. Havanas have "flyback" fur - if you stroke the fur "backward" (tail to head), it returns quickly to a flat position.

    New Zealand - another large rabbit, 9-12 pounds in adult weight. Unlike the American or Beveren (and like the Havana) the back is curved evenly from the base of the ears to a peak at the hips, then smoothly down to the tail. It has "flyback" fur - if you stroke the fur "backward" (tail to head), it returns quickly to a flat position.

    The following breeds are also ARBA-approved in Black:


    • Dutch (with white triangle on face, white shoulders)
    • Flemish Giant
    • Mini-Rex (Rex fur) (solid and broken (white with black))
    • Netherland Dwarf (solid black, tan (blue, black, chocolate or lilac with tan nostrils, eye circles, chin and sides of head, inside of ears, collar, feet and legs, underside are tan))
    • Polish (solid and broken)
    • Rex (Rex fur) (solid and broken (white with black))
    • Satin (Satin fur) (solid and broken (with white))
    • Silver (black with silver ticked fur)
    • Silver Fox (black with silver ticked fur)
    • Tan (with intense mahogany tan markings on underside, notstrils, eye circles, inside of ears)
    This color is very common, so be sure to check UPRIGHT / NORMAL / OTHER for other possibilities.
