It comes from Algeria and is just a small 4-6 lb rabbit called the Kabyle. It was initially created in the 1970s from the New Zealand, Californian and the burgundy fawn. This bunny comes with erect ears and is found in the following colours: tan, black, white, and brown. It was AGAIN created in the 1980's using the same breeds. This is a rabbit that performs well in hot temperatures.
This makes me think more people should know about it since around this time of year people ask "how can I keep my bunnies cool?" Or note that they've lost bunnies due to heat.
Last week I almost lost one of my does. She kindled in the DAY TIME on one of our hottest days. Thought for sure I would lose her despite treating her. BUT she bounced back .. took three days before she was back to normal and we lost a couple of her kits, but she's good! I was SO relieved.
The pic below are her surviving kits.
