Year of the Rabbit

February 23rd, 2011

As February rings in the Chinese New Year, it is worth noting that, according to the Chinese zodiac, it is the Year of the Rabbit. And, should you wonder why I am posting said observation, let me call your attention to any number of rabbit-y resources available from Steenbock Library to satisfy your interest in the little critter—whether seen as pet or pest.
