Just in time for National Jackalope Day, the Varmints podcast lands yet another animal expert to talk about the secret world of  jackalopes! Learn all about those wily Western creatures on this very special episode with third generation jackalope rancher Mr. Cotton Shorts!

Here’s some stuff we referenced on the show!

Why not pay a visit to the Jackalope Ranch? It looks lovely! Courtesy of YouTube user thejackaloperanch:

Dr. Geoff Abernathy, professor of biology at Tuff University in Oakland, CA takes aim at a lagomorph supporter at the annual Jackalope games.

Another ruined jackalope ranch. Their taste for flammable materials make ranching jackalopes one of the West’s most dangerous professions.

Leather shin guards used in jackalope ranching are a common sight in the desert Southwest United States.

Jackalope antlers or deer antlers? You can’t tell the difference and neither can your dog.
