Giant rabbit

Who can resist a picture of a ginormous rabbit on a Monday morning. Here is some text from the Chicago Tribune about pictured animal:

Karl Szmolinsky, who raises a breed of rabbits called giant grays, shows Robert, an 8.5kg giant gray who is 74cm long and has ears 25.5cm long, in the backyard of his house in Eberswalde, Germany in 2006. Szmolinsky sold eight giant grays to a delegation from North Korea that wanted to raise the breed as a source of meat for the North Korean population. Szmolinsky said his rabbits reach a maximum weight of 10.5 kg (23.1lbs.).

Enjoy gigantor fluffy farm animals,

Nothing but creepy -- but looks like there'll be plenty to go around the dinner table, and all dark meat! va momma
