All About Havana Rabbits
The Silky Brown or Black Rabbit
Havana rabbits can make great pets, but is a havana rabbit a good rabbit breed for you?
I have a little English Spot rabbit that was born on March 7, 2009. I adopted him on April 11, 2009. Now, before I got him, I considered getting a Havana rabbit because of their sweet temperaments. English rabbits were my first choice, but havana rabbits were second. I love their silky fur and beautiful eyes! Enjoy!
About Havana Rabbits
Havana rabbits are registered by the ARBA, or American Rabbit Breeders Association. They weigh up to 6 lbs. and come in three colors: Chocolate, Black, and Blue.
Havana rabbits come in the traditional deep chocolate color along with a rich jet black and a deep gray (gray with a blueish tint). Their coats have a satin-like sheen, like Satin rabbits.
Havana rabbits are known for being very laid back and relaxed. They are also known for being friendly. I have known a havana rabbit and even though it was a baby, it was very calm and hardly struggled.
If you are considering getting a Havana rabbit, then remember that rabbits are a long-term commitment (7-10 years or more) and require daily care like a dog or a cat. If you decide that a Havana rabbit is right for you, then make adopting one your first option.
That rabbits live 8-12 years. Make sure you learn about them first ad that you are prepared for the long term commitment! :)
