    Wow cool, but I think the site your linking to has some programing to keep you from directly linking photo's.

    I'm afraid.

    My mouth is also watering. That would make a big pot of rabbit stew, not
    that we have ever had rabbit stew.

    He is such a handsome boy! I don't think you can get that breed here in the states. After I first saw that picture, I looked for one! [​IMG]

    I just love big rabbits. I always thought if I got another rabbit I'd like one of the French lops, but one of these German giants would be even better!

    I used to own some Flemish Giant Rabbits. All were gentle giants, but they took up to much space. I had a 16 pound Giant Chinchilla.

    large rabbit breeds:
    * Giant Angora Weight: 9 1/2 lb. or larger


    *Blanc de Bouscat Weight: 12-14 pounds

    *British Giant Weight: 12.5 lb. or larger

    *Checkered Giant Weight: 11 lb (5 kg). or larger

    *Giant Chinchilla Weight: 12-16 lb

    *Flemish Giant Weight: 13 lb (6 kg). or more

    *German Gray Giant Weight: up to 23 lb (10 kg).

    There are several breeds of large rabbits, but most of them are not common in the US.

    My wife cooks rabbit soup it is one of my favorites. My wife says rabbit is the best meat for women, it is actually similar to chicken very tender and meaty.

    Fried is great! My kids like, even the DW. She says once she gets past the fact that it is rabbit she like it better because it doesn't dry out if you over do it a little. Just watch out for the shot pellets on the wild ones!![​IMG]
