Why Jackalopes?

Jackalopes are fun. Jackalopes are cool. I made a pilgrimage to Wall, South Dakota to obtain my two Jackalopes. It’s amazing I’ve collected this many Jackalope postcards.

Flying Jackalope ca. 1992
South Dakota Gold
One of the world’s rarest and most unusual animals… it is most frequently found in South Dakota. It is extremely shy and capable of blinding speed to escape detection. Because of its evasive capability it has not been considered one of our “endangered species” despite its rarity.

It is extremely shy and capable of blinding speed to escape detection. Because of its evasive nature it has not been considered one of the “endangered species” despite its rarity. This prize photo was taken with a telephoto lens a short way east of Wall.

Jackalopesis-Pheasantarus
(Latin name)
This startling photo of a rare Jackalope hybrid is a just reward for the patient photographer that caught this female of the species shortly after laying her one egg of a three year cycle. A valid reason why this creature of the Western United States has been so scarce down through the ages.

The Western Jackalope
This is an exceptional photo, as it not only shows the Western Jackalope in its natural habitat, a rare treat in itself, but it is picture of the almost non-existent hybrid, the Jackalopesis Pheasantarus, a creature peculiar to the Western United States and derived from mysterious hetergenous sources.

This nearly extinct antlered species of rabbit is found almost exclusively on the high plains of Wyoming. A distinguishing characteristic is his ability to mimic human sounds. His lonely cry, which resembles a mournful singing, can sometimes be heard on moonlit nights. During daylight hours the Jackalope hides among rocks and sagebrush.
