What Is: Fur

In rabbits, fur refers to the soft, dense coat of hair that covers the rabbit’s body.

The fur of a rabbit serves several purposes, including insulation, protection from the elements, and camouflage.

The fur of a rabbit is typically made up of two types of hair: guard hairs, which are longer and stiffer, and provide protection, and down hairs, which are shorter and softer, and provide insulation.

Rabbits are often bred for their fur, which can be used to make clothing, accessories, and other products.

However, it is important to note that using rabbit fur for fashion purposes is a controversial topic, as some people believe it is unethical to kill animals for their fur.
