Even those sabre tooth hares would probably have a hard time charging with a hole of that size in them. Over here, our largest ones are the Jackrabbits which are really a type of hare. They sometimes get up to about 4 kilos.

CRS, look in the Old Testament.
A Magnum is also a size of Champagne bottle, and a Jeroboam is just a larger size than a Magnum. Kind of like how the .405 WCF is larger than the .41 Magnum.
