As the son of the world’s biggest bunny, it was always likely that Ralph the rabbit was going to be a big buck.
But he has well and truly proved a chip off the old block after breaking the record set by his mother Amy – weighing in at more than three stone.
Ralph, a continental giant rabbit, is just 12 months old but already weighs more than Amy did before her death in 2009.
Owner Pauline Grant relies on handouts from neighbours to feed Ralph – who weighs more than an average three-year-old child and has already become too heavy for her to lift.
‘He is just so big. You do not fully realise until you pick him up and he has quite the appetite,’ she said.
