They are generally a cute animal however, that is not going to stop us from creating a list of our favorite rabbits specifically, we decided to make a list of the top 8 cutest rabbits for you to have as pets at home. Let’s get into it.
The top 8 cutest rabbits are The Angora rabbit, Dwarf rabbit, Silver Fox rabbit, Miniature Lion Lop, Mini Rex, Jersey Wooley, and finally, the black Havana rabbit. We used a variety of factors when creating this list.
In this article, we are going to talk a little bit about each of the rabbits on this list. Our goal is to help you choose which breed of rabbit is the right choice for you. So, if you have been considering getting a rabbit as a pet or companion, this list is for you. So, let’s get straight into it.
Top 8 Cutest Rabbits
Before we jump into the top 8 cutest rabbits there are a few things that I would like you to note about the list. The first thing is with some rabbits we picked specific variants of certain breeds and for others, we just listed the breed.
We are going to list the rabbit and then we are going to talk a little bit about each of them as well. So, with all of that being said, let’s finally jump into the top 8 cutest rabbits
- Cutest trait: Big ball of fluffiness
- Size: 4.4 to 12 lb (2 to 5.5 kg)
- Temperament: Docile and gentle
- Average lifespan: 7 to 12 years
The angora rabbit is classified as part of the European rabbit family. The cutest thing about this rabbit has to be how fluffy it is. The rabbit has long soft white wool and when it is in certain positions, their wool will engulf the entire rabbit.
The angora rabbit makes for great pets due to their gentle and docile temperament. They have an average lifespan of 7 to 12 years and can grow up to 12 lbs.
- Cutest trait: Pocket size
- Size: 1.5 to 2.5 lb (0.68 to 1.1 kg)
- Temperament: Calm and gentle
- Average lifespan: 8 to 12 years (can depend on variant)
There are many different variants of dwarf rabbits but the most common is the Dutch dwarf rabbit. The cutest thing about a dwarf rabbit is obviously its size. They are gentle and relatively friendly.
The Dutch dwarf rabbit is a rabbit that will spend more time with you when you compare the amount of time other rabbits spend with their owner.
In regards to the variants of a dwarf rabbit, basically, any species or breed of rabbit can be a dwarf rabbit if they have the genetic deformity, dwarfism.
Silver Fox Rabbit
- Cutest trait: It’s silver/black fur and its shape while sleeping.
- Size: 9 to 12 lb (4 to 5.4 kg)
- Temperament: Gentle and friendly
- Average lifespan: 7 to 10 years
The silver fox rabbit is born with black hair and as the rabbit matures, its hair starts to become silver. This generally happens at around 4 weeks. The rabbit is very friendly, very calm, and gentle.
They have a lifespan of about 7 to 10 years. They are also one of the largest rabbits on this list weighing between 9 and 12 lbs. The female Silver Fox rabbits are heavier than the male rabbits.
If you are considering getting a silver fox rabbit as a family pet then I recommend that you have an area large enough for this rabbit due to its size.
Miniature Lion Lop Rabbit
- Cutest trait: Size and lion-like mane
- Size: 3.3 to 3.5 lb (1.5 to 1.6 kg)
- Temperament: Friendly, happy, and excited.
- Average lifespan: Up to 10 years
The miniature Lion lop rabbit is part of the lob breed of rabbits. It is also part of the lion-head and that is where it gets its name from. These rabbits are relatively small weighing up to only 3.5 lbs but they have bubbly personalities that make up for the lack of size.
The miniature Lion lop is known to be one of the friendliest rabbits and it is hard to pick out what traits are their cutest, their lion-like main or its floppy ears. The thing with miniature lion lops is a lot of them look distinctly different to each other. Some have puffy cheeks while others don’t. One thing is for sure, they all have the lion-like mane.
American Fuzzy Lop
- Cutest trait: Size, cute face, and fluffy wool
- Size: 3 to 4 lb (1.4 to 1.8 kg)
- Temperament: Playful, curious, and friendly.
- Average lifespan: Up to 8 years
The American fuzzy lop rabbit is obviously part of the lop family of rabbits. With that being said, when it comes to the American fuzzy lop it is more closely related to the Holland lop than anything else.
Although this rabbit is part of the lop family, it was bred for the same purposes as the angora rabbit which is for its long, fluffy, and fuzzy wool. When looking at the American fuzzy lop quickly, it is common for people to briefly mistake the rabbit for a small cat. This is because it’s facial features resemble what looks very similar to a cat
- Cutest trait: Big ears, cute face, and T-rex like front arms/legs
- Size: 3.5 to 4.5 lb (1.6 to 2 kg)
- Temperament: Smart, caring, and gentle
- Average lifespan: up to 10 years
The mini Rex gets its name from its short front legs. The rabbit is a fairly new breed as it was only bread in the seventies and it was bred down south in Florida.
There are a lot of factors that make this rabbit cute and they make for a great house pet due to their caring, friendly, and gentle nature. The Mini Rex is actually one of my favorites on this list
- Cutest trait: The rabbit is fluffy and has cute features especially its puffy cheeks.
- Size: 2.5 to 3.5 lb
- Temperament: Docile, friendly, and gentle
- Average lifespan: 7 to 10 years
The Jersey Wooley was bred in New Jersey as its name would suggest. The rabbit is also fairly new as it was only bread in the 1980s.
The Jersey Wooley rabbit has a friendly and gentle nature and what makes this rabbit really cute is its fluffy wool and face that can only be described as an “A shape”. Its face is thin on the top with puffy cheeks.
- Cutest trait: Sleek black fur and long pointy ears.
- Size: 4.5 to 6.5 lb (2 to 3 kg)
- Temperament: Caring, friendly, curious, and social.
- Average lifespan: 7 to 10 years.
The last rabbit on this list is the black Havana rabbit. While the Havana rabbit does come in around 5 colors, for me, the black really stands out and makes this rabbit one of the cutest of one of my favorites on this list.
This breed of rabbit first originated in the 1800s which makes it one of the oldest rabbit species on this list. When it comes to the Havana rabbit’s temperament, it has so many good qualities that make it perfect as a house pet.
The rabbit is caring and social so if you have young kids around the house, I highly recommend taking a look at the black Havana rabbit.
Making a list like this can always be subjective. Not everyone finds the same traits “cute”. In fact, what one person finds cute, another person might not like it at all. With that being said, that brings us to the end of this list. Be sure to bookmark this page as a reference for when you go out bunny shopping.
