The title of world's biggest rabbit once again belongs to a 55-pound hare named Ralph.

The 4-year-old bunny from the UK had held the record until just last year, when a rabbit by the name of Darius beat him out, the Sussex Express reported.

But Ralph managed to claw his way back on a $90-a-week diet that includes cabbage, broccoli, corn on the cob, half a cucumber, a carrot, sweetcorn, two slices of brown bread, two apples, half a bag of watercress and crackers, according to The Daily Mail.

Owner Pauline Grant cares for the Continental Giant at her horse rescue facility in East Sussex, relying on donations each month to feed her behemoth bunny.

"We have got a big place here and he can go anywhere he wants," she told The Daily Mail. "He has a fantastic life and is not just kept in a hut. His diet is incredible."

Ralph's giant genes appear to run in the family.

His mother, Amy, held the record for biggest rabbit until she died of a heart attack four years ago, and his dad, Roberto, is also a former record holder, according to MSN.
