They all range depending on the breed. They can be from 3-4 pounds to 9-15 pounds

Some of the smaller breeds include the Netherland Dwarf, Dwarf Hotot, Britannia Petite, Polish Dwarf, Lionhead and Holland Lop. Most of these are under five pounds.

The small-to-medium medium sized breeds include the Dutch, Mini-Lop, Mini-Rex, English Spot, American Sable, & Harlequin. These tend to be between five to ten pounds.

The largest rabbits include (but are not limited to) the Flemish Giant (anywhere from fourteen pounds and quite a few can get over twenty pounds!). Another large breed of rabbit is the Giant Chinchilla.

There are plenty of breeds out there. You just need to do a bit of research to find out which one is right for you!

Where does the pet rabbit stay?

If a pet rabbit is a house rabbit it needs a suitable enclosed area inside the house big enough for the rabbit to do three BIG consecutve hops. If a pet rabbit is an outdoor rabbit then it will need a big hutch raised off the ground with a sloping roof and some protection from rain. Again, the hutch should be big enough for the rabbit to do three BIG consecutive hops. If a pet rabbit is living with another pet rabbit (recommended) then the hutch will need to be doubly big. My two pet rabbits have Molly's Mansion as their hutch.
