Never turn your back on a jackalope. Next thing you know, they multiply!
Since it’s been cold and rainy around here lately, the baby jackalope has been catching whatever sun he can.
He took a little longer than his mommy, as I got wrapped up in other projects and then lost one of my circs for a while. But he turned out rather sweet. And Little Miss loves him. I wish I’d put his ears more toward the center of his head, but she doesn’t seem to mind at all.
