Physiology about the rabbit species:
New Zealand Whites have well-rounded bodies; slender and muscular faces with round cheeks; large, long back feet; and small, short front pectoral muscles (Rubins). They have long perforated ears that stand straight up. Unlike the thick, snowy fur on their bodies, their ears have shorter fur that allows the delicate pale pink of their skin to show through. The most noticeable characteristic of New Zealand White rabbits is their bright eyes, which range in shade from pale pink to bright ruby purple. Due to their eye color their coloring is often referred to as REW (red eyed white). New Zealand White rabbits have large, broad, and muscular bodies. Females weigh between 10-12 pounds. In addition to their greater size, females are distinguished by the presence of a dewlap, which is a flap of fur below the chin that stores fat to be used as extra energy if needed during pregnancies and lactation.
New Zealand White rabbits have a genetic deviation called albinism. Albinism is caused by a lack of melanin, which is a pigment that gives all creatures, including humans, their skin/fur/hair/eye color. The snowy coat of a New Zealand white rabbit is a normal length like other rabbit breeds. Most New Zealand rabbits also have a white/pink/light brownish tint to their noses.
About their diet:
The diet of a New Zealand White rabbit is no different than for any other rabbit breeds. A high quality pellet feed (protein ~ 16-18%), along with unlimited timothy hay and fresh water and exercise will maintain a healthy individual. In production rabbits a higher protein feed (protein ~ 18-20%) ,and alfalfa or mixed hay in addition to unlimited fresh water may be necessary to maintain proper condition.
