'World's Biggest Rabbit' has rival in giant son
Last year, a rabbit named Darius won the Guinness World Record for "World's Biggest Rabbit." Now, his title is threatened by an unexpected competitor: his son Jeff.
Their owner, 63-year-old Annette Edwards, told the Daily Mail, "Darius was always big but Jeff is huge considering he's still a baby. I'm expecting him to grow much bigger than his dad."
She says that they get along well with other pets, are very friendly to people and yes, they have a sizeable appetite to match.
Annette says that every year, the father and son eat around 2,000 carrots and 700 apples, plus daily bowls of specialist rabbit food and a bale of hay every week -- all of which costs almost $7,500.
Annette says it's worth every penny, though.
"Although the pair of them are huge, they're the best animal friends I could ask for. They are both very laid-back and chilled out -- Jeff really takes after his Dad."That's for sure. And hey, there's nothing wrong with a little family competition.
