Physical Attributes: The rex is a large breed with upright ears. The face is farily thick, but it is not particularly short. The body is medium in length and rounded. It comes in many different colors. The most easily noticed attribute is the amazing fur, which feels like velvet.
Personality: Rex are generally a very friendly breed. They have a low to medium level of activity, and can be perfectly content to play or to just sit on a lap and be pet.
Coat Type and Grooming: The coat is upright, short, and very plush. The guard hairs are the same length as the undercoat, and the coat is very thick, creating a plush, velvety texture. Rex should not be brushed with a brush or a comb unless there is a distinct matt that needs removing. Instead, to remove loose hair, moisten the palm of the hands with water until they are just damp enough to be sticky, then run them over the rabbit's coat backwards. This will remove loose hair and static electricity.
