HIGHEST JUMPING RABBIT — The world record for the highest rabbit jump is 99.5 cm (39.2 in) and was achieved by Mimrelunds Tösen (The Lassie of Quivering Grove) who was owned by Tine Hygom (Denmark) in Herning, Denmark on 28 June 1997. The rabbit was black and white and was a member of Aase Bjerner’s rabbit club in Horsens, Denmark. No photos of the record event exist, but, other photos of them are on Aase’s web page (http://www.kaninhop.dk/uk/). Aase is a rabbit high jump judge and has confirmed all details. Both rabbit and owner were members of the club Kaninhop, which was under the Danmarks Kaninavlerforening (DK) (The rabbit Breeding Organinzation of Denmark) www.kaniner.dk .

LONGEST FUR — The longest fur on a rabbit is 36.5 cm (14.37 in) and belongs to Franchesca, owned by Betty Chu (USA), as measured in Morgan Hill, California, USA, on 17 August 2014. Franchesca’s proud owner is Dr Betty Chu (USA); she’s an expert on the English Angora rabbit, which is often mistaken for a Pekingese dog and needs a great deal of care… and a lot of grooming of that dense, silky fur. http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/117939-longest-fur-on-a-rabbit
