Breed: New Zealand Black
Description: The latest color to be produced, the black, has the same meat and fur qualities as its earlier counterparts and is also rapidly becoming popular as an exhibition rabbit.
The color should be jet black right down the fur, with no rusty or brown tinge. The toenails should be dark blue. White toenails are a total disqualification. The origin of the New Zealand black is unclear as little has been written about it.
The New Zealand was produced in the United States as a utility animal. The meat qualities of this breed surpass all others. In addition, the fur is of such high quality that it can be used by furriers.
