My dad used to say that when a Flemish Giant pooped, it could be measured on the Richter scale (he lives in CA).

I know they can thump and make the floor shake.

I think that my Zoe has your Flemmie(s) beat. In late July, she was shedding heavily (despite dailygrooming) andpassing a decent amount of fur. (She's a megacolon bun and, so,always passes fecals that are large for her 4.5-lb. size.) She started acting very cranky, which I attributed to increased discomfort caused by ingested fur that her digestive system was working to pass. A few days later, she certainly passed something: a 2"-long, 3/4"-wide (at the widest point), fecal-coated ball of fur. I took several photos of it next to a tape measurer, lest anyone ever dispute the idea that a lil' Mini Rex could produce such a load.

Uh...yeah....imagine that, X 4, in ONE cage...every 2 hours or so.

Sweetie and her 3 babies were poopin' machines, towards the end! Of course, we had expanded her cage to include a "front porch", so it could accommodate her, and her "little" offspring. Dave said that just gave them more space to poop!

That's cool - we've had the girls have night feces that big that they didn't clean up - but I wasn't going to photograph those..yuck.

I figured I did good to just get their poops..
