All About Havana Rabbits

Updated on December 31, 2010

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! :)

      Rabbits, especially Havana rabbits make very good pets for people WITHOUT young children. I litter trained mine and he is out most of the time. My small dog and the rabbit get along great too.

      These buns are real cuties. I have seven rescue buns and they really are a joy to have.
