Nature knowledge from Canada to my Aussie friends


Recommended Posts

Okay, the joke has run its course. Forgive me fellow conspirators, but in the interests of Forum civility, I'm letting everyone in on the joke. A jackalope is not a real creature. It is a tourist come-on invented by a taxidermist, who took horns from a dead prairie antelope and stuck them on a dead prairie jackrabbit as a joke on tourists who were coming from the east to experience the "real" west. The joke is still popular, and "jackalopes" can be purchased at tourist traps east-west from Minnesota to Montana, and north-south from North Dakota to Texas. The Canadian dolphin shown above, on the other hand, is quite real. ;)

We don´t have dolphins here in Germany, the most exotic animal probably is the Wolpertinger https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolpertinger

 

 

 

I believe the  Wolpertinger  is a distant cousin of the Jackalope.:)

Jackalope, Wolpertinger!  Obviously, the taxidermy business is not doing too well.  Taxidermists have left over animal parts, and WAAAY too much time on their hands!
