American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) recognizes four breeds of Angora: English Angora, French Angora, Giant Angora and Satin Angora. There are more breeds of Angora in the United States and the rest of the world. One of the more popular "other" breeds of Angora is German Angora, the foundation for the development of Giant Angora in the 1980s.
Our Massachusetts member Chris O. recently has a litter of German Angora. It's very nice of her to share the pictures with our members.
The picture on the right is taken when the litter was 6 weeks old. The picture on the left is one of her favorite does at 3 months old. German Angora and Giant Angora are similar, though not exactly the same, in their looks. Some of them are shown on the show table in the Giant Angora breed. Though there is a separate organization for the German Angora, there isn't any show that resembles the ARBA sanctioned shows.
