Now that's what I'm talkin' about!!! I have actually read that the Guiness people will no longer rate the largest rabbit themselves for fear the owners will overfeed or otherwise do wrong by a rabbit. I'm not sure if that is true or not but if it is kudos to them for thinking of the bun first.

If that's true than that is definitely a kind thing to do. They have my support. And kudos to them.

I think Guiness does not go by weight for largest or smallest of anything. This is to avoid people over or under feeding their pet just to get a record. They will go by measurements such as length or height.

I do have to wonder how he got that big. 50 pounds, if that is his actual weight, is obscene for any rabbit. His diet sounds terrible as do the diets of other rabbits that claim to be the biggest. Seems they don't live long, get fed a horrible diet and the people don't care.

Yes, it didn't sound like to good of a diet to me either. Its too bad because that cute big guy won't live for that long.

I can't remember if it was a forum member I was discussing this with on facebook awhile back, but one of her other rabbits(maybe Darius' mum, can't remember) died of a heart attack while being flown to Italy for a tv show. That pretty much sums things up, right?

Plus, I don't think he is the biggest. I think there is one in Berlin who is or was possibly bigger...can't remember though.

Kaley, I'd like to know that, too! Considering I found carrying nine kilos of pig heavy today. :S I think I'd struggle with 22 kilos(50lbs)...

That is one adorable rabbit BUT the diet does sound awful. Way too much sugar in there. I so hate this stereotype that you have to feed a rabbit carrots!!

The poor thing is only 13 months old. My son quickly calculated that the poor bunny is getting 12 carrots per day!!!!!!!

(Not to mention getting 4 heads of cabbage per week!)


oh... I just saw the article is from 2010. I doubt the poor bunny is still alive.
