At 4ft 4in (1.3m) and 22.2kg, Darius is currently the biggest rabbit in the world, but he may not hold that title for much longer, because there’s a new pretender – his son. Jeff is 3ft 8in (1.1m) and has about six months of growing left, so his owner, Annette Edwards, expects him to grow larger than his giant rabbit dad.
The two cute bunnies are members of the Continental Giant breed, which was bred for meat but is now prized as an intelligent and loving house pet.
Given their size, these fluffy animals sleep in large dog crates instead of rabbit hutches. The cute rabbits Edwards holds eat their way through 2,000 carrots and 700 apples a year, a hay bale a week, as well as special rabbit food, all of which costs her £5,000.
Continental Giants are known for their docile temperament and in spite of their huge size make incredible house pets. That is if you’re looking for owning a dog-sized incredibly cute bunny!
