Annette Edwards has a noble goal: to breed the world’s biggest rabbit. It now appears that she has succeeded in her silly little dream of lagormorph gigantism with Amy. While most country folk are content with merely growing the world’s largest pumpkin or zucchini, Annette has succeeded in creating a rabbit that could easily eat a child.
We agree, this picture is way too big.
Fully extended, Amy the rabbit is 4ft from nose to tail. Good lord. Although the inimitable news source that is the Daily Mail quotes three different weights for Amy, the heaviest is 3.5 stone or roughly, in American, 104 Big Macs, or alternatively, 49lbs.
Amy currently sleeps outside in a dog house. She eats a dog’s bowl worth of pellets, two apples, a handful of carrots, half a cabbage and fresh hay each day, which reportedly costs $20 in England (where produce is apparently seven times the price of the US).
Annette’s daughter, Bridget, describes her new pet as “horrifying”
In this photo, Amy laments the “normal” rabbit life she must forgo as she is mistaken for furniture by a former playmate.
