  Biggest Rabbit - Ralph the rabbit sets world record

 UCKFIELD, East Sussex, UK -- Ralph, a Continental Giant rabbit, is just 12 months old but already weighs 19,5 kg (42lb) and is 1.23m (4ft) long - setting the new world record for the Biggest Rabbit.

 Owner Pauline Grant relies on handouts from neighbours to feed Ralph - who weighs more than an average three-year-old child and has already become too heavy for her to lift.

   'He is just so big. You do not fully realise until you pick him up and he has quite the appetite,' she said.

   'It really hits us in the pocket having to feed him but thankfully Ralph is so famous in the area people stop me in supermarkets and offer to fit the bill.' 'I have no idea how big he is going to get, it could be a ridiculous size but everyone loves him and he laps up the attention.'

   Mrs Grant, 73, who runs the Sussex Horse Rescue Trust in Uckfield, said it has daily meals of Weetabix, water biscuits, apples, carrots, cabbages, toast, sweetcorn and huge bowls of rabbit food. "He's really heavy and his weight is all in his shoulders and back end. He likes his food and I take him a big tray full of all his favourite things every day."

    The world's biggest rabbit is just 12 months old but already weighs more than his mother Amy - weighing in at more than three stone. Ralph's dad Roberto is also a previous record holder for the world's biggest rabbit after weighting in at 35lb and measuring 3ft 1inches.

 
    Ralph's mother Amy, a Continental Giant rabbit, was the previous Guinness world record holder for the Biggest Rabbit title; she suddenly dropped dead just hours before she was to star on a television show.
    
Owner Annette Edwards, 56, flew her from Britain to Milan specially to appear on the Italian version of Record Breakers. But a day of filming in front of the cameras proved too much for Amy, who had given birth to 32 babies. She died in a hotel room that night.
