The Tick Canyon Giant Rabbit was a large, unknown, rabbit-like animal that was sighted by a geologist named Dr. Stephen P. Albert of Los Angeles in March of 1969 while mapping rocks in Tick Canyon.
The creature was described as being 3-5 feet tall and weighing approximately 150-175 pounds. It has been described as having a kangaroo-like body, but with a distinct cottontail like that of many rabbits, no kangaroo pouch, and very long ears.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
- A misidentified escaped wallaroo
- Many years later, the Dean of geology Clarence Hall was also doing some mapping in Tick Canyon. He ran into an elephant being ridden by a lady in a bikini.
