Re: Amy:The world's hugest rabbit

The first pic is quoted elsewhere on the net as being some German rabbit, not any British one. Anyway it looks more like a bear than a rabbit, I really think it's a hoax.

The other two pics are OK, the rabbit is HUGE but not monstruous, its size more in line with all the pics of giant rabbits you can find on the net. I really doubt its weight can be 22KG, though, that would rather be a pig.

Noticed that, too.
It could be a hoax, but I think it's rather the camera angle that makes that animal look indeed monstrous.

The result of a very strange biological experiment perhaps - a cross between a pig and a bunny... (no, it's not possible, btw).

I hope it's an angle thing, otherwise I dunno... I tell you I wouldn't come closer than 100m from such a monster, it's creepy beyond believe

You can discuss the ethics of this, in reality such big animals probably should be considered diseased and they probably have several medical problems and issues and may suffer (both due to breeding for size and obesity on top of that) that those articles in the UK newspapers will never tell about. I do get the impression that the owners of Amy are trying to make some mint out of their "project" (let me guess, a few thousands quid per newspaper article?).

Extremely large size of an individual (as opposed to an entire species) is mostly a medical problem, in many cases it is due to a tumor that produces growth hormone in the pituary gland (hormone producing tissue at the base of the brain). When this tumor is present during childhood or adolesence, the individual grows very large. In humans this rare condition is called "acromegaly" can result in human giants as high as 7-8 feet (2m50). I think these days most children with this condition in the Western world receive medical treatment to prevent extreme height and related complications.
agree with you

World's Fattest Cat (from the UK, of course, where all the blobbies live )



PDSA veterinary nurse Jennie Keen with Tinks, a 13-year-old cat from Gillingham. His current weight of 9.8kg makes him around 96 percent overweight.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Hmmm... I'm sorry, but this is an absolute case of obesity - the owner of that cat should be prosecuted for animal maltreatment.

Re: Amy:The world's hugest rabbit

Poor cat, not funny at all... do they feed him fish&chips?

I'd take the fatty cat home rather than the monster rodent anyway.

Re: Amy:The world's hugest rabbit

What are you talking about, a cat is NEVER terrible or scary the poor thing just need some qualified medical help and a retraining order for his idiotics owners.
