This isn’t fiction. It’s a real animal and its alive
Unlike the more common breeds of pint-sized rabbits, the Continental Giant rabbit can grow up to around four feet in length. The world record for the largest is currently held by a cutie named Darius, clocking in at four feet four inches. His incredible reign is probably about to be overshadowed by his own son. Literally.
Though they are a mostly low-maintenance pet option, there is one hefty drawback — the food bill. Feeding the whole family (mama rabbit Sally is a petite three feet five inches) costs an average of $7,000 for carrots, apples, and specialized rabbit food each year.
But Edwards doesn’t mind the cost one bit when she cuddles up to her colossal companions.
Once she’s sure Jeff has finished all his growing, Edwards plans to take him to the vet first and then verify him as the new champ through Guinness World Records.
Enjoy your time with the title while you can, Darius. Something tells me it won’t last too much longer.
