If you look really closely, you’ll see this rabbit has three ears. The black ear on his left (our right) is cradling an inner white ear. It’s not easy to see in this photograph, admittedly, but exceptionally clear in person. Gorgeous, isn’t he?

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    Back in 1974, my wife, Kim would come with me to the base sometimes when I worked night shift at Torrejon Air Base in Spain. She’d go to the movies or play bingo at the rec center or NCO club or whatever. One night, she went to the movies (they were 35 cents…geez) and she saw an icky bug movie called Night Of The Lepus. It was about giant wabbits (rabbits) run amok in the southwest. When she left the movie about 11 or so, she had to walk across the base to the flightline to the AGE shop where I worked. This was crawling over steam pipes and across the occasional empty field in the dark. She got the crap scared out of her when she ran across a warren of jackrabbits! The ran all over the place in front of her. I think she ran the rest of a half mile to the shop and had thistles stuck to her pants (they were the only weeds the sheep that the Spaniards grazed there wouldn’t eat). When she came into the equipment yard, I saw she was freaked. She “splained” and it was a great story to tell.
