The Easter bunny ain't got nothin' on me.
The English Angora rabbit is one of the oldest types of domestic rabbits. They originated in Turkey but became popular pets of French royalty in the mid 18th century. They appeared in the US in the 20th century and are now bred mainly for their long Agora wool. 

There are many different breeds of the Angora rabbit, but only four are recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association. Those four are the French, English, Giant and Satin. The English Angora is the smallest of the four and is also more common as a pet because of its teddy bear facial features. 

Like its celebrity look-a-like, the English Angora rabbit is very high maintenance. Its thick and abundant wool needs to be groomed at least twice a week. But hey, at least the wool can be used to make a pair of comfy winter boots. 



See the resemblance?
