Venetian Rabbit?

IMG_9809Okay, who can come up with the best name for this creature? It resembles a rabbit, but not quite like any rabbit I’ve ever encountered! He’s so skinny and long-legged, and where is his bushy tail? Is this guy a cousin to the famed jackalope in the American Southwest? Notice the jackalope’s antlers:

I spotted this rabbit plate in the window of this shop in Campo San Maurizio:

Okay, who can come  up with the best name? Please post your ideas.

    A hare, perhaps?
    A hare apparent?
    Hare today, jugged hared tomorrow.

    I agree with “hare” – leaner, faster, trickier.
