English Lop Rabbit

The English Lop rabbit breed is noted for its floppy ears, that can reach lengths of 25 inches by the time it is 4 months old. It has a mandolin-shaped body with a full, rounded chest. Though developed in England in the 1800s, research shows that the lop existed in Africa and Egypt as far back as the 1600s.
