Easter Bunny Explained
From our Our Science Correspondent Anitab we have the following exclusive from her family archives:—
The existence of the present day egg laying Easter Bunny is due entirely to Dr Florentine Anitab, who was Professor of Zoology at LaLa University. She successfully crossed a rabbit with a Duck Billed Platypus to produce the egg laying Easter Bunny that brightens children’s Easters to this day. Dr Florentine is pictured here with the first successful egg laying rabbit, you will note its squat shape due to its Platypus genes. She was later able to achieve the traditional rabbit shape without losing the egg laying ability. For this work Dr Florentine was awarded the Nobel prize for Zoology.
Dr Florentine is Ani’s Paternal grandmother and she has allowed us to use these photographs from the family album.
Our Science Correspondent Anitab has kindly let us publish another picture from her family album. This shows her grandmother,Dr Florentine Anitab, in her early days of scientific breeding when she concentrated on breeding minature pigs for small farms and smallholdings.
