Believe it or not? The Rabbit Breeds Picture above is a real photograph. Rabbits do indeed come in all different shapes and sizes. Some rabbit breeds are huge when full grown while others can weigh less than five pounds. In this article I will be providing you with a rabbit breeds chart which will help you learn more about the many breeds of domestic rabbits.


Types of Rabbit Breeds

In my opinion there are two main types of rabbit breeds in which all other classifications fall into; domestic and wild rabbit breeds. All of the breeds of rabbits recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association are domestic breeds. Domestic rabbits can be kept at home and raised while wild rabbits should not be handled. Today's domestic line of rabbits originated from the European Rabbit which was selectively bred for desirable traits over a long period of time.
