Benny the Flemish Giant Rabbit Vying for World Record

Benny the longest rabbitBenny is a Flemish Giant house rabbit living in Oxfordshire, England.

Measuring 82 centimeters long (~32 inches), Benny is longer than the previous record holder, Amy, a Continental Giant who died last May who measured 81.5 cm.

Benny joined Martin and Sharon Heather’s household last year when Martin came across the large bunny at an animal sanctuary. Although sanctuary staff warned that Benny didn’t really warm to people, Benny took an instant liking to Martin. With that, the Flemish Giant was welcomed into the Heather family.

Benny enjoys the run of the house and is often found snuggling with the family dog on the sofa.

    So anyone else notice the giant claw this lady is sporting…looks fake

  7. Maura Says:

    This would be an incredible sight to see, but why does her hand look as big as her head… photoshopped?

  8. Sab Says:

    Why people always think these bunnys are fake? It’s such a wonderful breed. I want German Giants since 2 years, but my flat isn’t big enough. *sigh*

    Her hand is as big as her face ’cause hands are ALWAYS this big. Just cover your face with your palm to see.
    Also there’s a wide-angle perspective. This emphasizes the bunny’s size, too.

  11. Sharon Heather Says:

    That’s me in the photo. Benny weighed in at 22lbs. He ate bunny pellets, hay and vegetables. He was about 86 inches long. He was one big bundle of bunny love. He wanted to raise awareness of the animal shelter he came from and going for the record was just one of the ways he did this. He was never photographed other than his home because we thought it would be to distressing for him.

  12. Sharon Heather Says:

    Oops I meant 86cm about 34 inches :)

    Greetings, I truly love you blog template. Could you mind telling us just where you bought it ? Appreciate it

    Wow, the only place I’ve seen a Flemish Giant rabbit is a zoo- where it had bitten out of it’s cage and was sitting on the floor- it was huge!

    How did your rabbit move around? He looked lovely.
