Pet rabbits are pretty run of the mill, but a four-foot long rabbit? That’s a rarity. English woman Annette Edwards is the owner of Darius, the Continental Giant rabbit who measures four-feet, four-inches long. She also cares for Darius’ son, Jeff, who is expected to grow even bigger than his word record holding dad.
As you might imagine, it’s not exactly cheap to have two pets the size of people. Edwards figures she spends around $7,000 a year on food alone, which includes 2,000 carrots, 700 apples, and lots of hay.
Regardless of the cost, she says her rabbits are great pets. “They are both very laid back and chilled out – Jeff really takes after his dad,” Edwards explains. “Most rabbits like lots of attention and get on well with children and these two are no exception.”
