The Department of Agriculture in Spain is funding the Valencia regional government to develop a breeding program for the rare Valenciago rabbit, which can grow as large as a lamb, produce 16 young in a litter, and procreate like, well, you know. It is hoped to be an alternative to red meat, what with global warming and economic crises laying waste to the meat biz.

It's definitely not a palooka. And apparently Germany has a similar breed, but theirs comes in grey.
