-Junior Editor Quiz on- JACKALOPES -TWE. PKOHGHORU I& QUESTION: Is the Jackalope an antelope or a Jack rabbit? ANSWER: If you will roam around the Western plains (black area in map) you.may come across, in a house or restaurant, the mounted head of a very odd looking animal. The neck, face and long ears are obviouly those of the skinny-looking western jack rabbit, the animal with long legs who skims along so fast and can jump up to 20 feet. But above the rabbit's head rises the queerly shaped horns of the prong horned antelope, another very fast running western animal. Ask your host what this strange animal is and he'll say: "Oh, that's a jackalope, it's a cross between a jack rabbit and an antelope." Do you believe him? If you do he'll put you down as an Eastern tenderfoot, for the jackalope is an animal which doesn't exist and never did. The idea originated because the two animals, with patches of white against brownish colors, resemble each other, especially at a distance, as they leap lightly across the Western landscape. There have been many other mythical combinations of animals, like the unicorn, a horse with a long ivory horn carried by the arctic narwhal.
