-Like most furred animals, rabbits have two alleles for this gene, with symbols B and b respectively. When B is present (BB or Bb) the brown/black eumelanin is its normal, unlightened, ​colour: Black. But when a rabbit is bb the brown is lightened to Chocolate.+Like most furred animals, rabbits have two alleles for this gene, with symbols B and b respectively.
