Vote Fact or Fake? Giant Rabbits

Bunnies and stuffed animals share a lot in common, such as being soft, fluffy, and adored by children. Stuffed animals, however, come in a very large variety of shapes, colors, and sizes ranging from the small palm-sized to the gigantic 7 foot tall ones. Rabbits, on the other hand, are more limited in variety, and remain roughly within a certain size and weight range.

 As is usually the case though, there are exceptions. A breed of rabbits called Flemish Giants can grow to extraodinary sizes. Some of these rabbits have even reached over three feet tall and 17 - 18 pounds!

The rabbit pictured above is from Germany and belongs to a breeder named Hans Wagner. Wagner describes the hare as a gentle giant and says that he doesn't give the bunny any sort of special diet to have him grow so large.

Should you by any chance like to purchase a Flemish Giant they can be found through breeders online. A rabbit the size of a small bear will certainly surprise and entertain(or frighten) your guests.

Then correct or clarify yourself.

Because your poll question asks......"Are the Giant Rabbits a real invention?".

they look scary

ok being that size takes away the cuteness. That rabbit looks dangerously scary to a point. and can you imagine the droppings. They use the bathroom anywhere like "whatever someone will pick it up". lol Oh no that rabbit could not be walking around my house late at night. It would scare the hell out of me in the middle of the night with them ears and eyes. lol
