Before I tell you about Hermann, I must first tell you my story of “big” rabbits:
Before I moved to Munich I bought a new pet to take it with me to Munich. It was a rabbit named iuno. I originally wanted a small and little race, because my first flat in Munich had just 30 m². But the pet shop sold me iuno, a so-called “Mini-Lop”. What I did not know at this point was, that “Mini-Lops” are small for a Lop, but do not belong to the smallest races. So her size was basically the main reason, why iuno just lived for half a year with me in Munich. Now she is living with her companion Bajazzo in a garden house in the garden of my parents.
Hermann is a lot bigger than iuno. He weighs 7,7 kg, his ears measuring at 21 cm (the whole rabbit is just under a meter long) and he eats 2 (!) kg of food a day. I do not know if the data of Hermann is correct, because I did just find some newspaper posts about him and a myspace site with no data about him. I also did not find any German posts about him, although he is (or was?) living in Germany (Berlin). But nevertheless I found the following amazing picture of Hermann.
