History of The Perlfee Breed
This beautiful and rare rabbit breed originated in the early 1900s in Germany. At that time the pelts of Siberian Flying Squirrels were quite valuable, and local rabbit breeders crossed various other rabbit breeds in an attempt to recreate that valuable pelt.
Lucky for us, they came pretty darn close to the beauty of the Siberian Squirrel, and the fur of the Perlfee is silky smooth, dense, and certainly luxurious.
The most distinctive feature of their fur is that the longer protective hairs (called Guard Hairs) have both dark gray and light gray tips giving these beautiful bunnies a pearlescent appearance where they seem to change color as you move around the rabbit.
