Caring For Angora Rabbits

Caring For Angora Rabbits
by Debbie Smith 3-8-00

When most people talk about rabbits, a vision of a small, grayish-brown or white fuzzy animal hopping through the grass, or the Easter Bunny come to mind. However, rabbits are considered a small exotic animal by Vet medicine. Unfortunately, there is not a wealth of information available about their medical care.

There are hundreds of different breeds of rabbit throughout the world. One breed of particular interest to fiber-minded people are the angoras. Their life span can go up to 9 years, but the norm is usually 5 to 7 years. Their fiber is the softest and silkiest to use. Their care is important in order to prevent wool block, and to keep the fiber free from mats. If left to nature, the angora rabbit as known today would be extinct. The breeds of angora are the English, Satin, French, and Giants.
