You Called It a WHAT?

This is an "Antelope Jackrabbit," which reminds me of all the other animals that are unclear on the subject of clarity: the Porcupine Caribou, the Catfish, the Dogfish, and the Catbird to name a few.

Never heard of an antelope jackrabbit. This is a Jack Rabbit doe, probably pregnant and a bit thin. But then there are no fat Jack Rabbits. Some tourist wandering around saw her and had to elucidate. This is how tall tails are started. I'm thinking this gal could outrun a fox hunt. She's pretty in a Texas sort of way.

Debi and the Jack/Rat Pack.

Almost all American Jackrabbits (actually a type of hare) are blacktailed jackrabbits (Lepus californicus). Antelope Jackrabbits are found only in Arizona and northern Mexico and are Lepus alleni.
