There are two names for this variety, sable and Siamese sable.
Sable rabbits have dark sepia ears, face, legs, and the upper side of their tail. The saddle (upper part of the back) is also dark sepia which gradually shades to a lighter sepia. The face is darkest at the muzzle and eyes and gradually shades to a lighter color. The chest, sides, belly, inside of legs, and the underside of their tail are light sepia.
