The jackalope is a pretty famous cryptid; there are fake taxidermied rabbits with antlers on their head mounted all over the United States in museums of kitsch and "wacky facts."
The truth behind it is quite a bit sadder: the Shope papilloma virus can cause horn-like, malignant protrusions to grow out of the bodies of many wildlife, including wild rabbits and hares. They look remarkably like antlers, and often appear on the heads and faces of animals.
This was done in my old style of Micron Pen on paper, scanned in and edited to colorize in Clip Studio Pro. I was unhappy with the carcinoma "horns," but still like the 70s children's book-esque color scheme.
