Flopsy the Jackalope is the official mascot of Silly America.
Flopsy hopped into my life (and my car) while I was visiting Wall Drug in South Dakota and he has become my very favorite travel pal!
Flopsy is a Jackalope: a cross between a jackrabbit and an antelope, and one of the rarest animals in the land. Although you don’t see them about very often, if you are lucky you will spot one in Wall Drug, where they seem to thrive. Even luckier are you if one of them decides to let you adopt him! Especially as they are known as being very shy creatures.
This jackalope is small and gray. His ears are pointy, his nose is pink, and his antlers are a little crooked…but he is the sweetest animal anyone could ask for!
Flopsy made himself a home in what used to be the cell phone holder in my car…but we now refer to it as the Flopsy cave. He loves to travel around the country with me and sometimes even lets me photograph him at one of the crazy places we find together. He won’t admit it, but he actually is a ham for the camera!
