About two weeks ago I bought a jackalope (see photo) from Garth Brewood`s excellent antique, bric-a-brac and furniture ('and much more'- his leaflet) shop Aladdin`s Cave at 29 Park Lane, Macclesfield, (07720 901899) (see another photo).
Garth had bought this jackalope in the U.S. It now resides on the wall of my living room, surveying, er, the opposite wall and bookcase, much to the amusement of my friends. It is interesting to compare it to a jackalope I photographed in a restaurant in Dreifelder Weiher central Germany in May 2009 on the way with a team of about 12 others to survey butterflies in Hungary. The 3rd photo here shows this particular jackalope.
The jackalope is a supposed folklore animal, a “cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope, goat or deer.” (1)
