As New Zealand follows the UK (British Rabbit Council), show standards, all references on this website to Mini Lops refers to Miniature Lops.  These are similar to American Holland Lops.  Miniature Lops are a small cobby lop eared rabbit with an ideal show weight of 1.5 kgs (max. 1.6 kgs) although brood stock can reach much heavier weights.
