GIANT Rabbit! :eek:
 
http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/giantrabbit.asp




Claim: Photograph shows a 17-lb., 3-foot German Giant rabbit.

Status: True.

Example: [Collected via e-mail, 2006]

Now THAT’S an Easter bunny

He weighs in at 22 pounds and measures a little over 3 feet. He is a breed of rabbit called German giant (how appropriate!). This is his owner, Hans Wagner, struggling to hold him up. From the NY Post article:

Wagner said, "We don't feed him an unusual diet. He goes through more than his brothers and sisters, but he eats the same food mix. His favorite food is actually lettuce. He can never get enough of it."

LOOK AT THOSE FEET!

Origins: The above-displayed photograph and accompanying information were taken from a 3 February 2006 New York Post article. The critter pictured is Herman, a German Giant hare belonging to German breeder Hans Wagner. The extraordinarily large hare weighs 17 lbs., measures 17 inches high on all fours, and stands over three feet tall on his hind legs.

According to the Post article:
To find out how unusual Wagner’s wabbit is, The Post contacted Six Bells Rabbitry in Arvada, Colo.

"That's a huge animal. That's amazing," said breeder Michelle Jones. "In the States, it's hard to get them past 12 to 15 pounds."

How did German Giant get so big?

"I don't feed him an unusual diet," said Wagner. "He goes through more than his brothers and sisters, but he eats the same food mix. His favorite food is actually lettuce. He can never get enough of it."

Herr Hare is unusual in another way, he noted. "Unlike some other rabbits I've had, he’s really a gentle character — a gentle giant."

:lol:

I want one of them! It seems that Snopes doesn't let you link to their photos anymore, so I uploaded it to ImageShack.

Are you sure that guy's not midget?

One, you've been here seven years and still don't know that you can't put smilies in thread titles? -ohbfrank-

Two, that's a hare, not a rabbit. -ohbfrank--ohbfrank-




;)

I want to see that thing actually hop around.

Imagine the good luck you'd have with one of those colossal feet on your keychain.

The Teletubbies show uses some enormous breed of hare. The costumes the adult performers wear, with large heads to give them proportions more like children, are 8-10 feet tall (including antennae), so they use the big bunnies to make them look smaller.

Cats have more muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than hare.

My god...think of the giant Cadbury Eggs we could get from these rabbits!

mrpayroll 04-19-06 12:01 AM

He looks so uncomfortable. But it's probably like holding a dog or a cat by the scruff of the neck, it doesn't hurt them.
