“Individuals who say a rabbit is a rabbit is a rabbit; they haven’t been to an American Rabbit Breeders Association rabbit show.” 

From the droopy ears of the lops to the long, luxurious fur of the angoras, the American Rabbit Breeders Association annual convention is a place of incredible diversity. With 49 different breeds and hundreds of colour varieties, there are endless kinds of rabbits to behold.

And every one of them is vying for the title and the glory of “Best in Show.”
