Guus is also a bit cheeky.

He is curious about many things like tasting snow, jumping in the garden, and even stealing some snacks from Danielle’s desk or her grocery bag.

Flemish Giants are gentle giants.

According to Northern Nester, Flemish giants are called gentle giants because of their docile nature. They are one of the calmest and most friendly breeds of rabbits.

In taking care of rabbits, we need to think about the temperature of our room. Flemish Giants are sweet creature and loves cuddle time.

They typically jump around and sit easily on anyone’s laps when kept indoors. A litter box can be used to potty train these rabbits.

Flemish Giants are kind to everyone, even kids. But like what Danielle said in her interview, they should be taken care of by adults.

Kids must be supervised by adults when playing with these gentle giants.

They eat a lot of food due to their enormous size. Many advise to include hay, water, and high premium rabbit pellets in their diet.

But if you are just here to experience the happiness of Danielle and Guus, you can always follow their journey on Instagram.
