The massive rabbits have an annual carrot budget of nearly $7,500. 

The four-foot-long hare pictured above is Darius, the Guinness World Record title holder for the World’s Largest Rabbit. Darius turned five on April 9, and to celebrate, his owner Annette Edwards, 63, of the UK, helped him plump up.

“I’m probably going to let him have extra nice carrots treats,” Edwards told ABC News. “He just loves the carrots with the yummy green tops.”

Darius’ son, Jeff, loves eating carrots too and is quickly catching up to his dad’s size. He measures in at three feet, eight inches long and is sure to grow bigger than his dad. When he does, Edwards will invite the Guinness record keepers to come take the official measurements.

If you’re wondering what the giant rabbits are like as pets, Edwards says they’re both like dogs.

“They are potty trained,” Edwards said. “They’re very friendly and tame, they follow you around like dogs and they like to play ball. Both of them respond to their names, and they sit when I tell them to.”

I want a giant bunny.
