Wolpertinger (Bavarian Jackalope)

This is a wolpertinger

It's basically a Bavarian version of the jackalope. According to Wikipedia:

Like the jackalope, the Wolpertinger is thought to have been inspired by sightings of wild rabbits infected with the Shope papilloma virus, which causes the growth of antler-like tumors in various places on the rabbit's head and body.
And this is André SMATIK Ljosaj's version of the wolpertinger:

You can see more work by Smatik here, and play a flash platformer featuring his wolpertinger here. Via.
