The year of the rabbit is upon us and just about every family in China has started making their special purchases for the Spring Festival. One of the popular choices in some Chinese cities this year are rabbit pets.


At a pet market in Chongqing, the sales of rabbit pets have skyrocketed. In order to attract buyers, shop owners have hung out different slogans.

"The rabbits are very cute and beautiful, so I want to have a look." Customer said.

One shop owner makes it easy for customers to pet and hold a rabbit.

"The fur of the rabbit is very soft. Its body temperature is not as warm as a little dog, but it's very light when you hold it." Customer said.

This rabbit from the Netherlands is called a Holland Lop. Due to its gentle characteristics, this breed has sold very well. A rabbit of this type will cost customers about 400 yuan, or around 60 U.S. dollars.

Liu Yu, Pet Shop Owner, said, "I've sold more than 30 rabbits so far. The rabbits have been greatly welcomed by students and ladies."

Whether you like a lop-eared from the Netherlands, or a Hotot from Germany, which have a panda-like eyes, all these rabbits come from abroad. Their cute characteristics and variety of colors are making a charming addition to the coming Spring Festival.
