Holy smoking Toledo, there are blue rabbits! This is certainly something that I don’t ever recall seeing on any of my favorite cartoons as a child, so how can this even be possibly? I mean, blue? They’re supposed to be grey, white or brown. This is freaking me out. So what happened here? Did this breed of rabbit just decide to go to some trendy hipster hair parlor for the over 50’s who want to try and retain their youth b y splashing some outlandish colors into their hair to hide the greys, or did they have a little bit of hanky panky with some devilish smurfs? I think not, and it wasn’t even genetically engineered or the result of a horrible laboratory accident. So just how are these rabbits blue, and more importantly, how the heck can I get my hands on some?
OK, so these unique blue rabbits were kind of genetically engineered, but not in a laboratory. In a similar way in which different dog breeds are created by mixing and matching until the desired results are attained, these wascally wabbits underwent a similar process. They are bred from a species of German rabbit, and are renowned for having the deepest blue of all rabbit breeds. They were developed in the early 1900’s.
