Ummmm I'm not a vet or anything, but a few years ago, my bunny's belly started getting really big, she wasn't pregnant or anything, I took her to the vet and they said she had a hair ball that blocked the feces in her colon. This caused her to be unable to poop and so her belly swelled up. Just monitor your bunny and make sure he doesn't get too lethargic. Take him to the vet if you suspect something! Best wishes.

I think it is absolutely normal, My bunny does not move either, although it is not very healthy. Eating a lot of food is normal, as it means that he needed the nutrients and energy. My bunny is really obese as well lol.

The habits and symptoms of your bunny as you have describes here doesn't show that your bunny is ill or something of that sort. But still I would recommend you to take your bunny to a vet and get it examined. It may have some problem in its stomach.

Rabbits can get really big. It sounds normal to me.
