I have a thing for creatures that don’t exist + I live in America = I have a thing for American mythical creatures.
Now, some might think first of Bigfoot or the Wendigo, but for me, it’s all about the Jackalope. (Tweet this) I mean really, put antlers on an animal and it goes from normal to legendary. Don’t believe me? Check these out:
Now these two deliciously novel critters are new on the scene so they don’t have any backstory. How about we come up with some?
What legendary event produced the polalope and/or the catibou? (Tweet this) What mythical abilities do they have? What is their special weakness? Comment below!
In the upcoming weeks, stay tuned for more traditional American mythical creatures like the cactus cat, hoop snake, bigfoot, and the /gasp/ chupacabra.
And if you see any jackalopes while you’re out and about – or anything else that has antlers that shouldn’t – shoot me a message with a picture. We’ll post it here for all to see, and who knows? You just might win something!
