i was just wondering what some rare bunnies were... and how rare is a dwarf hotot? What does it mean when they say they come with a pedigree? does that mean papers? Can you get papers for rabbits who dont come with any? No right? since, I think, papers document their familiy line?
hotots are very common, i have a baby one right now along with an english spot. the difference is that the hotot has white w/black markings (black ears, black around eyes, black spots down back) and the english spot has similar markings but are brown.
lionhead bunz are rather rare only because they are a fairly new breed of rabbit. they have the kinda stocky/pudgy bodies and then have longer hair around their necks, sort of like a, well, the mane of a lion. the length of hair can vary and they do come in lotsa different colors.
there are clubs exclusively for white bunz with blue eyes. they are definitely not as common as the white with red eyes. but i don't think they are rare, just not as common.
satin bunnies don't seem to be very common at all and i think they are mostly bred for show. there are bunz bred for show that rarely come around to the pet trade (that's us!) such as blue & lavender varieties.
of course, i think that all of the bunz i've had the pleasure of being with are each & every one of them a rare and beautiful critter!
