Fiberglass Jackalope at the Jackalope Bar in Austin, Texas

The Jackalope Bar is a popular dive bar in Austin, Texas named for my favorite animal. And what would a bar with a name like that be without a giant fiberglass jackalope inside!

What is a jackalope? The jackalope is a mythical North American animal often described as having the body of a jackrabbit with the horns of an antelope. The name is a portmanteau of the two creatures: jackrabbit and antelope.
