The Angora rabbit is a variety of domestic rabbit bred for its long, soft wool. English Angora is the smallest Angora rabbit of the four breeds recognized by American Rabbit’s Breeding Association (ARBA). This breed is more common as a pet because of the facial features that give it a puppy dog or teddy bear look. The English Angora rabbit is the only rabbit that has hair recovering its eyes.
The Giant Angora is the largest of the ARBA accepted Angora breeds. Like many other "giant" breeds of rabbits, the Giant Angora grows slowly. A senior doe usually takes moe than a year to reach full maturity (size and weight). A senior buck can take up to 1.5 years to fully mature (size and weight).
