This breed is bred almost solely for its fur. The rabbits are rather comical as they are a huge fur ball with a face peeking out. This is the largest of the angora breeds recognized. They are only accepted in pure white with ruby eyes (albino coloring) and are generally docile rabbits.
Giant Angora’s require quite a bit of maintenance to keep their fur from matting, and to keep them from dying of fur balls. Each time they try to clean themselves, they swallow a little bit of fur. With fur that grows an inch per month, it can add up quickly. It is recommended to sheer these rabbits about every 90-180 days. It is considered a must for the health of the animal to sheer it at minimum every 180 days. Each sheering can produce 12 ounces of wool.
