Darius the rabbit with Mia, (aged 6) – The worlds biggest rabbit munches his way through a staggering 4,000 carrots a year costing his owner a mammoth £2,500 (around $3.800) a year in food. Real life Easter bunny Daruis – who weighs three-and-a-half stone, has a huge appetite and can eat up to 12 carrots a day, as well as cabbage, apples and two large dog bowls full of rabbit mix. This all adds up for owner Annette Edwards, 62, from Worcester who has to fork out £2,500 a year just to feed her giant pet. Hungry Darius devours 4,000 carrots, 120 cabbages and 730 dog bowls full of rabbit mix over the year. But recently Annette has become hopping mad over her huge rabbits giant appetite and is considering putting Darius on a diet.But she is more than happy to put up with her pet’s insatiable appetite (Picture: Caters)
‘He has a great personality and so I can’t be too angry when he is trying to sneak more food,’ she says.
‘Luckily he likes to hop around all the time – I had to put a child gate on the stairs to stop him going up there.’
The Continental Giant rabbit currently holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s biggest rabbit.

‘There is no secret to growing the world’s biggest rabbit,’ she claims.
