But, it was enough to look at this picture for us to rethink that, because oh my god, look at those eyes, we can see death in them.

    Font - gallusrostromegalus Follow Jack Rabbits are North American Hares and they're the WORST to encounter at night becuase: You all know how big a rabbit is.

We love Alice in Wonderland, don't get us wrong, but the rabbit with the clock used to give us nightmares. Thank you, tumblr, for the kind warning. Now, we'll go pee ourselves.

    Font - It's only the briefest of movements but the animal you'd picked out for his gangly legs and floppy ears and goofy smile is suddenly a dark shape of muscle and teeth and had flung himself at the horrible goblin rabbits faster than mere physics should dictate, appearing in the circle of the flashlight for only the briefest of moments before the jolt from the leash makes you stumble and the light falters The Jack Rabbits Scatter Vanishing into the faintly starlit sagebrush in as so many fain
