Are you wanting to get a bunny, but don’t know what color you want? There are so many colors, or “varieties,” within the Holland Lop breed. Scroll down to see photos of a ton of different Holland Lop colors, and a basic description of each!
The Self Group
"Self" describes a rabbit that is one of the 6 solid colors. Look below to see these colors.
Black rabbits will be a solid black color throughout.
Blue rabbits can range in shading, from a lighter grey color to a dark slate color.
Solid chocolate can come in multiple different shades - it can be a dull/soft brown color, or a much more rich brown color.
Lilac is a dilute Chocolate. It is a beautiful, light dove grey color.
Blue - Eyed White (also causes the Vienna mark gene)
Blue-eyed white rabbis will be solid white throughout, with bright blue eyes. A ruby/purple cast to the eyes can be caused by Chocolate or Sable - based colors in their lines.
Ruby/Red - Eyed White
Ruby-eyed whites are white throughout with red eyes. We do not breed this color here at Whisper Lops.
