As of 2015, the biggest rabbit in the world is a gentle giant named Darius, who weighs 49 pounds and measures 4 feet 4 inches long. Darius can eat as many as 12 carrots a day, or nearly 4,000 a year. He also likes carrot tops and hay.
Darius is listed in the "Guinness Book of World Records" and is owned by Annette Edwards of Dorchester, England.
Darius is what is known as a Continental Giant rabbit, a breed that can reach weights of 35 pounds or more. The breed was originally raised for meat and is said to have descended from the Flemish Giant. Continental Giants come in a variety of colors that range from white, yellow, opal, light steel and black. They are gentle, with easygoing temperaments, and make good pets.
