"Welcome to the wonderful world of Himalayans. As you have already selected them as your breed, I hope that you will remain with Himalayans for many years to come.
Himalayans are a unique breed. There is no other breed as gentle and easy to handle. Their gentle, loving nature puts them in a class unto itself. Their small size and weight allows for smaller cage space and lower feed bills than many other breeds of rabbit.
Himalayans are one of the oldest breeds of rabbit known throughout the world, dating back to ancient times in countries like China, Tibet, and Russia. It is one of the few breeds that was not man-made by crossing different breeds of rabbit. Black Himalayans are the only true and pure Himalayans*. Blue, Chocolate, and Lilac Himalayans are man-made varieties..."
*By that, Carl only meant that the only naturally occurring Himalayan was the Black variety. Blue, Chocolate and Lilac varieties had to be out crossed to achieve their color.
