If you envision all rabbits as being small and delicate, then these 12 Flemish giant rabbits are sure to make you think again.

If you've ever been lucky enough to see a Flemish giant rabbit in real life, then you know how impressive these rabbits are.

Flemish giants typically weigh about 15 pounds, but they can grow to weigh over 20 pounds. Because of their size, Flemish giants require lots of space to keep them comfortable and fit.

Rather than living in a cage, many Flemish giants do better off with a pen or room all to themselves. If you take a look at these beautiful rabbits, you're sure to see why.
