Default Biggest BUNNY I've ever seen!

I wish I would have gotten pic/video...

Stayed at the hotel in Gettysburg this past weekend and someone brought their pet 'bunny'. I don't know if this is some new fad, or if it was mixed with something else... but this thing was huge.

She was 17lbs at 6 months old and apparently would grow to be 30lbs.

Hysterical when my 16lb terrier was terrified of this thing. They let them sniff on the ground and the bunny kept hopping towards Jackson, and every hop, Jackson would take a LEAP backwards. He had NO idea what to think of THIS bunny, though he happily hunts the small ones in our backyard, LOL.

It was too funny. That bunny was the boss of him.

Was it perhaps a Flemish Giant bun? Those things get HUGE.

Wow! Never heard of bunnies that big! (Maybe it's crossed with a Maine Coon cat? ) Poor Jackson! He'll probably have nightmares about MegaBunnies now.

It was probably a Flemish Giant. They are FANTASTIC! I have had a mixed breed rabbit, and I currently have a lionhead, but basically Flems are worshiped in bunny forums and I would love to have one in the future.

poor conversion rate & their meat to bone ratio isn't the best. however, they do make good terminal crosses.
oh and they are just awesome to see.

Sounds like a flemish. Pops is right about being an ideal terminal cross to a commercial breed like a new zealand or a californian.

This was one of my Flemish when I was a kid. This bunny is about 4.5 months old in the picture if I remember right and the girl in the picture is me at about 15 or 16, the older guy is my grandfather. He loved that rabbit, if I remember right that particular one was a 26lber as an adult.

Flemish was my thought too, since sadly, the Continental Giants haven't come into Canada/US yet.
