TYPES OF RABBITS
The White Vienna Rabbit is definitely a beauty. With their stunning all-white coat and pale blue eyes, this lovely bun breed makes a very welcome addition to your family. But that’s not just because of their gorgeous looks. White Vienna Rabbits have other traits that make them good companion animals.
Breeders introduced the Vienna rabbit breed in Austria in the late 1800s, and it came in white, agouti, and slate blue colors. Then, in 1907, Wilhelm Mucke, an Austrian breeder who longed to create an all-white rabbit with blue eyes, finally managed to achieve his goal.
Their soft, silky white fur and lovely blue eyes are the most notable physical traits of White Vienna Rabbits.
Considered a medium to large breed, these buns have well-developed muscles on their barrel-shaped bodies. In addition, their ears are furred, which is another distinctive trait of the breed.
Gentle, calm, and affectionate, those words best describe White Vienna Rabbits.
Fortunately, White Vienna Rabbits are not prone to any breed-specific ailments. So what you just have to watch out for are the usual health issues rabbits usually develop. These conditions include overgrown teeth, GI stasis, ear mites, and other parasitic infestations and hairballs.
Provided with the proper care, White Vienna Rabbits live between 6-12 years. Of course, genetics still play a role in the lifespan of a bunny, so make sure you get your pet from a responsible breeder.
