Angora
Facts & Advice

Gentle, docile and irresistibly soft with a love of interaction

The snuggly, longhaired English Angora Rabbit is known for its luxuriously thick and fluffy coat, and makes a loveable, gentle pet.

Vital Stats

Size: Medium, weighing about 2-3kg (5-7lb).
Coat: English Angoras’ thick coats need daily grooming to prevent matting, and will also need to be sheared a few times a year to encourage new hair growth and help maintain a healthy coat.
Life span: 5-8 years.
Temperament: Angoras are intelligent, gentle rabbits who love to play, especially with cat toys. Although they like to snuggle up to their handlers, they dislike being picked up and can become aggressive when frightened. Extra care must be taken when handling them as their spines are easily damaged.
