In general muscles of male rabbit is more active than the female one, the function in each carcass also more active, suspected there is a different characteristic of muscles in each of male and female rabbit carcass. The purpose of this research is to know the physical characteristics of muscle Longissimus dorsi and Biceps femoris of New Zealand White Crossbreed Rabbit. Research using the Design Pattern of nested (nested), muscle Longissimus dorsi and Biceps femoris is nested within the sex of males and females. Data were analyzed with analysis of variance followed by Duncan's multiple range test. Variables observed were: muscle acidity (pH), the water holding capacity, and the color, i.e. the brightness (L), reddish (a) and yellowish (b). The results showed that gender has no effecy on pH, Water Holding Capacity and color of muscle of New Zealand White crossbreed rabbit. Acidity (pH), Water Holding Capacity and color of Biceps femoris and Longissimus dorsi of male rabbit had no different, similarly on female rabbit.
