Believed to have originated in Flanders, Belgium, the Flemish Giant was bred as early as the 16th Century. The breed was exported to America in the early 1890s to help improve the size of meat rabbits during the great “rabbit boom”. The docile personality of the Flemish Giant has earned it the nickname “Gentle Giant”, and its varied use as pet, show, breeding, meat, and fur have made it a universal rabbit. – Though there is no maximum weight for the Flemish Giant, they often tip the scales at over 20 lbs.
