The Argente rabbit is one of the oldest breeds of French show rabbits. The American Rabbit Breeders Association recognizes Creme and Champagne colors. At birth, Argentes are of a solid color, with adult coloring beginning to show around four months of age. They are known as excellent pets due to their good nature.
Argente rabbits are large (averaging 10 lbs.), neat, and cautious rabbits with well-developed hind quarters and slightly arched backs. Extremes of cobbiness or raciness are undesirable in shows. With broad heads and straight front legs, they are short and fine in bone. (Wikipedia)
