For your edification and enjoyment (always provided the picture comes out), I present the jackalope–a rare hybrid of jackrabbit and either white-tailed deer or pronghorn antelope.
It is said the jackalope is not real. Well, neither is a lot of the stuff we have to deal with today, is it?
But it’s at least as real as centaurs. You can’t argue with a picture!

My 5 yr old who loves animals is laughing hysterically at this picture.
Wait a few years, till he or she is old enough for my books–these contain some really funky animals! Some of them have been pictured here and there around this blog–although I haven’t managed to work a jackalope into the story yet.
That would be so awesome if it was real.
Could you please send me one.
Hey, the jackalope is the state animal of Wyoming! Or at least that was what i was told when I was stationed there. 🙂
If there’s a picture, it has to be real. 🙂
The poor thing would be top-heavy! 🙂
