>Fossil record proves moon once inhabited by rabbits!


Why is it always a rabbit shaped rock.


But how did the intelligence that carved the rock know what rabbits look like, hmmm?


They found the Jade Rabbit! This is a big deal in Chinese culture – a central figure in the mythology of the Mid Autumn Festival (the holiday with mooncakes). The Apollo missions were asked to look for the moon goddess Chang e and her rabbit companion. They were unsuccessful. Finally, the rabbit on the moon.


Wonder if it’s making mochi up there.
