Flemish Giants are one of the oldest & largest breeds of rabbits in existence. Experts believe that this giant rabbit breed might be descended from related breeds such as the Stone Rabbit and the European Patagonian; both of which are now extinct, but were raised for fur and meat purposes. The first recorded reference to this breed was noted as being from the Flanders region in Belgium, during the 16th Century.
Flemish Giant Rabbits reach sexual maturity at around 8 months old, and females can give birth to litters of up to 12 young. The gestation period normally lasts between 28 and 32 days.
