History

This breed originates from France and was created during the middle of the nineteenth century. It was introduced into the UK primarily as a meat rabbit but in 1965, the French Lop was exhibited for the first time to this day, they remain a very popular exhibition and pet rabbit.

The French Lop is a very large rabbit, weighing more than 10lb (4.5kg) with lop ears and an almost cubic appearance with a short thickset body and large head. The front legs are short and straight and the hind legs are carried parallel to the body.

Behaviour

As a large rabbit, the French Lop can be quite placid but is as likely to develop actual behaviour problems as other breeds. Their size dictates confident handling and they will require a large hutch/run to move around freely. They are not the rabbit for small children or people that have limited space, although they can live in the house as a house pet.

Varieties

Black, White, Brown, Blue, Agouti, Chinchilla, Opal. Sooty Fawn, Siamese Sable, Orange, Fawn, Steel and Butterfly (white on underbelly, chest, feet and nose, leaving one of the above colours on the back, ears and a distinctive butterfly marking on the head).

great pets really affectionate - Flufy,

I have had my French lip for 7 months and she is the best thing in the world. Her fur color is blue and she loves to have her forehead rubbed. She has gotten me through some tough times, I suffer from depression. I call her my therapy bunny because she always shows me love and affection.


I love french lops for there fluffy fur - Hersheybunny,

Huggles - Carolann,

I have had my French lopen Huggles for nearly 4 years and is wouldn't swap him for the world. He is my first pet that I have called my own and he is fantastic. He is very intelligent and friendly and helpful enjoys chasing after his large tennis ball! He is a brilliant pet and I am so glad he has become such a huge part of the family.


- Sami,

I've had my French lol Bella for approximately six years, and when we last weighed her a couple of years ago she was a good 5kg. She was originally a garden rabbit with a large hutch and lots of space to run around but when she grew a little older we tried to get her a playmate and she was having none of it! So then she moved indoors so the other rabbit could live outdoors. She's made a fantastic house rabbit. She's litter trained but much prefers to run around on the garden every day (separate space to the other). She gets on much better with the dog and will even cuddle up to him! She likes a nice stroke but on her terms not ours! She's a little madam when she wants to be - she'll stamp if her dinner isn't on time or if something in her space has been moved and she'll often wander into the kitchen searching for treats. But on the whole she has a grest temperament. She has problems with her ears sometimes as do all lops, and occasionally she gets dry, sore eyes. She's brought us a lot of joy and I'd recommend the breed to everyone!
