This is Herman, He's a German Giant bunny. And yes, he's real. Back in the 80's I lived in Northern Germany and the Schurz Kaserne had (and probably still does) had a colony of Giant Flemish Rabbits that lived on the golf course. I always thought they were big brownish rocks until a few of them moved one day when I was visiting the PX.
Abnormally large animals are strangely cute
