Re: Horned diggers

Jackalopes don't dig, except when prospecting; instead seeking shelter in bars, 
taxidermist and souvenir shops. Their primary survival skill is an ability to 
play dead that absolutely puts possums to shame, frequently even appearing to 
be artificial. Fascinating creatures, w/ a truly bizarre reproductive cycle.
