Why Rabbits have Big Ears

A myth submitted to the site by Amy

Australia, Australia

Millenniums ago there lived a very cruel rabbit. He teased all the rabbits alive and tormented them. His name was Cru, he was a bully! Back in those days rabbits had ears the size of a pebble; to communicate they had to yell at each other.

One day a little girl was going for a bike ride along a path through the woods when she heard a talking noise, she asked if there was anyone around. But no one answered. Then she saw a family of rabbits talking to each other, she asked the rabbits if it was them talking and then the biggest stepped forward. He said that it was him talking and that there was a bully around that needed to be stopped in his tracks and his name was Cru. What they didn’t know was that Cru was standing behind the tree next to the family of rabbits. When the little girl left she told the rabbits to come and visit her the next day.

So the next day the family of rabbits headed off to the little girls house, when they were walking past the clothes line Cru jumped out from behind a bush with some clothes pegs in his paws. He grabbed the family and hung them all up by their ears on the clothes lines and put some rocks in the back packs to stretch their ears! When the little girl walked outside to get some of her clothes off the clothes line when she saw the family of rabbits on the clothes line, she ran to them and pulled them off and they ran away never to be seen again!

With their stretched ears they could hear really well so they could whisper really quietly. No human ever heard a rabbit talking ever again!
