I know, he must have a terrible diet to weigh 50 pounds!

And your right he probably isn't even alive anymore.

But take a look at that diet! This poor bunny doesn't get ANY pellets OR hay! :{

In the pic, that rabbit is saying "Someone, please save me from this kid!"

I don't see too much wrong with it. He probably gets a little bit too much sugar from carrots and apples, but you also have to take into consideration his size when you figure recommended amounts. And though cabbage can cause gas, and I don't like to risk feeding it, not all rabbits have digestive problems with it. This rabbit obviously doesn't and seems to tolerate it fine. He doesn't look fat or overweight. He's just a big breed rabbit and isn't fully matured, so is still growing. So aside from a diet a little high in sugars, he seemed to be happy, in a good home, is obviously loved and seems well cared for.

I see that he is active but a couple things wrong IMO: 1)those kids shouldn't attempt to hold him since they obviously cannot and dropped him several times 2) He seems to get cabbage over lettuces. The calcium and sugar in 84 carrots and 14 apples alone is simply terrible. 3) I don't care how many she has bred, she doesn't understand basic nutrition.

I do like that they mentioned how he's exercised and while he is not overweight, his teeth can't be that good if they just stick a carrot in his face instead of letting him forage for hay.

Maybe someone here with Continental Giant breed expertise can come settle this?

Almost no one in the US messes actively with Contis or German Giants.

I have Flemish. I also read that article, and that poor wabbit eats a tremendous amount of crap, personally.

My biggest doe is 21-point-something pounds. She's built like a truck and has a very long frame. My biggest buck is 20 pounds, twelve ounces and patting his flank feels like patting a brick wall. He's a registered Grand Champion three times over. Yeah, I could probably pork them up by handing them all the kale, carrots, raisins and yogurt treats they care for. Oddly, neither of them actually LIKE them. And really, I don't like my Giants flabby.

My non-wabbit friends send me links to these idiotic Conti or German "world's largest" news stories. I am patient, but I explain to them, look, how would it be if those UK papers had articles about "fattest US baby?"

#fail.

To be completely fair - the video did say "In addition to some special rabbit food, he gets..." And I did that quote from memory, so it may be off a little bit.

"U crazy kids! Put that rabbit down!!!!" Is what I just yelled to the video. Ugh. Terrible diet. I saw this on Facebook and commented on it and said "yuck sounds like a bad diet" and everyone jumped on me and said "well at least he's alive and fed!" I just rolled my eyes and exited Facebook. (It is aggravating lol).

Yeah, I've asked people to stop posting that one guy's German Giant on my timeline because he reportedly tried to help a country in the East start a breeding program that would help with their famine, then stopped helping them after he sold them the first rabbits.

What's up with Darius's weepy eyes? That doesn't look right Well, I think most people are loony, so that woman makes my list even if Darius is totally fine.
