Largest rabbit ever
Minorcan giant rabbit <i>Nuralagus rex</i>
Spain (Minorca)
The largest rabbit of all time was the Minorcan giant rabbit Nuralagus rex, which inhabited the northwestern portion of the Balearic island of Minorca 3–5 million years ago during the Messinian-Pliocene Epoch. It measured 0.5 long, and weighed an average 12 kg, although some fossil remains have been found that suggest a weight of up to 23 kg – six times as much as today's European rabbit Oryctolagus cuniculus.
