  Giant bunny is star at show for small pets
Updated 17 January 2003, 19.09
Dancing star with owner Sarah
If you're in Doncaster this weekend you'd better keep a close eye on where you're walking or you could end up stuck underneath the world's largest rabbit!

Hagrid-sized rabbit Dancing Star is making a big appearance at the Bradford Championship Show .

About 5,000 animals take part in the annual event, which is a kind of Crufts for little pets like guinea pigs, rabbits and rats.

But as a Giant breed, this bunny is officially the largest in the world, according to the Guiness Book of Records.

Dancing star weighs in at 11.5kg and is a metre long from the tip of its nose to the end of its fluffy tail.

With Dancing Star around you might want to avoid wearing orange on the day, in case you get mistaken for a giant carrot!
