Now here is one big bunny!
Nikkapotamus sent over this photo of her bunny Snickelfritz with her daughter, who was one year old at the time. I like a bunny that can double as an ottoman, don’t you?

Some bunnies enjoy a quiet read.
Have you heard of the swamp rabbit?
It is a variety of cottontail rabbit that lives in the swamps and wetlands of the United States!
Here are some swamp rabbit facts from The Nature Conservancy in Indiana:
- The swamp rabbit is the largest cottontail in North Ameria.
- It can swim, and it must live near water for its diet of reeds and swampy grasses.
- It can hide from predators by sitting in water with just its nose sticking out.
- One tried to jump in to a canoe paddled by President Jimmy Carter in Georgia in 1979. The press dubbed it the “Killer Rabbit,” after the rabbit in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Here is a photo of the incident:
President Carter splashed the rabbit to keep it from jumping in with him. It seems that the rabbit and the President were both unharmed.
Let’s kick Bunny Week off with a cute bunny video. This bunny opens letters!
John was helping me with stop motion animation software yesterday, and when I wasn’t looking, he made this cute video of his toy Fry going for a walk!
The toy comes from the Kidrobot Futurama series.
