What is a Jackalope?

Jackalopes may sound like very strange creatures that only exist in the minds of those wanting a bit of publicity; however, many people have reported seeing these unusual creatures in Wyoming and throughout the American West.

The Jackalope if it really exists is one of the rarest animals in the world. It is a cross between a species of killer rabbits and the pygmy deer which is not extinct. The Jackalope has antlers, is brownish, weighs around three to five pounds and can move with speeds up to 90 miles per hour.

Many people have claimed seeing the Jackalope in Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, and New Mexico. It is also believed that the American Jackalope has cousins in Germany known as the wolperdinger and in Sweden by the name of skvader.

However, many believe that the Jackalope is the mystical creature that was created in 1939 by Douglas Herrick who was at that time a resident of Douglas Wyoming. He and his pals had been out hunting. He walked into the shop and tossed a jackrabbit on the floor, it slid up against a pair of deer horns lying on the floor. A taxidermist friend of Douglas’s decided to mount the “jackalope” and the legend began.

On the other hand, scientist have their own explanation which is that a virus known as paillomatosis which causes a growth caused by a parasite to harden the top of a rabbits head, thus resembling horns.

No one will know for sure if the jackalope exists until some brave soul can capture this fast creature on film.
