The coat is dense and of medium size on the back (2.5 to 3 cm in length), but around the head it is longer (mane), measuring between 5 and 7 cm in length, with a “V” shape behind the neck and greater amount of hair in the chest region. They also have a slightly longer coat on the flank, known as the skirt, which is more evident in animals under five months of age. They present several varieties of coloration, such as white with red eye (Ruby-eyed white), chocolate, black, blue (“dilution” of the black color), among others.
As it has areas with longer hair (mane and skirt), at least two brushings a week are recommended to remove loose hair, dirt and prevent the formation of knots. Because of the prominent mane, the ideal for Mini Lion rabbits is to use nipple drinkers or bottle to prevent the fur from getting wet or even wet, and resulting in inflammatory processes. The other care is the same for any rabbit. To learn how to properly raise a lagomorph and ensure all the necessary prerequisites for a good quality of life, it is recommended to carry out an orientation consultation with a doctor specializing in unconventional pets ( wild and exotic).
