A while ago I made this creature for a swap with the awesome suereal and I kind of think it deserves its own thread.... She likes rabbits, or so it said on her page and I just knew that this one would be for her. Also, I had so much fun making it that I just can't resist sharing it Wink

Of course, it came with instructions: Grin

Adopt an
 Alsace Rabbit, commonly known as the Easter Bunny !

Lepus sylavaticus hedera, Schreckstein 1527

Discovered by the German Alchemist, Dr. Schreckstein in 1527, this subspecies of the common rabbit is a crossing between plant and animal. It's origins are widely disputed, some documents dating back to the 16th century even attribute their existence to the mysterious experiments of their discoverer.

Although widely spread in their native grounds of Alsace (French: Alsace, German: Elsass; the fifth smallest of the 27 regions of France, a highly disputed area between Germany and France) at the time of their discovery, the Alsace Rabbit is now near to extinction. This might be due to the high popularity of the sugary taste of their clear eggs that reveal the colorful creature inside, especially around Ester-time. Also there is some discussion that the species , consisting of both plant and herbivore animal, has some genetically created dietary difficulties.

In the age of artificial food and flavours, the Alsace Rabbit is now trying to make a comeback. Widespread promotion may also lead to increased awareness in children in order to give their eggs the time they need to mature.

The Board for the Alsace Rabbit's Fornication (B.A.R.F.) is hoping for your support in adopting and preserving this unique species.

Made mostly from socks and felt, the ears and flower stem are are bendable...

Any comments or critique would make my day! Grin
