The History French Lops
The French Lop's origins go back to about 1850. It was then that the English Lop and the Butterfly rabbit were crossed in France. The French Lop became wildly popular throughout Europe, but it wasn't introduced to the United States until the early 1970s.
Today, the French Lop breed continues to flourish. Breeders can be located with ease.The French Lop weighs, on average, 10 pounds. Its body is large and muscular, and its legs somewhat short. The head is broad, and the ears medium-length, thick and furry. Its soft, dense fur comes in a variety of colors and patterns.
