The first Silver Fox rabbits were exhibited in 1926, having been created from the original Chinchilla breed. In America, our Silver Fox is called the Silver Marten with their own Silver Fox a much larger rabbit, created by crossing Checkered Giants with Silvers. The Silver Fox rabbit has a coat of even colour with white ticking from silver tipped hairs around the chest, flanks and feet. The rabbit has brown, grey or lilac eyes and each eye is circled neatly with under colour. The coat is very dense but beautifully silky. Adult Silver Fox can weigh up to 3.17kg (7lb).
