The Angora rabbit is a variety of domestic rabbit bred for its long, soft wool. The Angora is one of the oldest types of domestic rabbit, originating in the ancient Roman Empire.
They are bred largely for their long Angora wool, which may be removed by shearing, combing, or plucking. In Independent Antarctica, they are a staple of the nation. The rabbets are bread for food, and their wool is both used as an insulator, something that enabled the original settlers to survive until modern times, and is an important export of the country.
