Tiny Rabbit Is In Love With His Giant Girlfriend That’s Four Times His Size

Most families feel that their house is not a home without a pet. And the Covelli family were no exception. Their 16-pound, 3-year-old Flemish giant rabbit named Lilly Sunshine is a cutie who spends her time hanging out with her beau Romeo.

Romeo is the complete opposite of Lilly and weighs only 4-pounds.

Their owner, Sarah Covelli, said to The Dodo, “Everyone is usually taken aback by Lilly’s size, and then when they see her with Romeo, they are even more surprised. Romeo has the nickname ‘tiny husbun.’”

“Romeo is a sweet, curious little guy,” Covelli said. “He’ll jump on the couch and climb over us. He is also Lilly’s shadow — he follows her everywhere! I think he knows she’ll protect him.”


The pair share their love for one another on Instagram – where they have gained plenty of followers who like to stay up-to-date on the latest tidbits of their sweet little lives.

While many are left in awe at the pair’s romance, the couple makes it look second nature.
