- He weighs in at 22 pounds and measures a little over 3 feet.
- He is a breed of rabbit called German Giant (how appropriate!).
- This is his owner, Hans Wagner, struggling to hold him up.From the NY Post article: "We don't feed him an unusual diet," said Wagner. "He goes through more than his brothers and sisters, but he eats the same food mix. His favorite food is actually lettuce. He can never get enough of it."LOOK AT THOSE FEET!Can You imagine the LUCK you would have with one of these!!!!!!!!
Like Robert, Herman is also a real animal and the photograph is genuine. Herman lives in the German city of Berlin with his owner Hans Wagner. There are conflicting reports regarding Herman's exact weight, but Robert may be a tad larger. According to a CBBC Newsround Online article that discusses this giant bunny," Herman lives in a specially built solid oak hutch and chomps his way through just over 2kg of food a day. His owner says his favourite snack is lettuce". Herman is something of a celebrity and even has his own MySpace page. Rabbits like Robert and Herman belong to a specially developed breed and do not live in the wild.
