    Upright Ears - Normal Fur - Solid White color with Red Eyes

    See the Note on Red-Eyed White Rabbits for more discussion.

    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.

    Florida White - the Florida is a smaller rabbit, with an adult weight of 4-6 pounds. The body is short, and 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.

    New Zealand - another large rabbit, 9-12 pounds in adult weight. Unlike the American or Beveren (and like the Florida White) 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.

    • Polish (solid (red- or blue-eyed) and broken with black, blue or chocolate)
    • Rex (Rex Fur) (white (pink eyes), broken (white with any other recognized color or tricolor) and Californian (white with black nose, ears, feet, tail))
