    I think most people have made a translation error and it is actually a hare!

    The one I spotted up the top certanly has rather long and non-floppy ears for a rabbit.


    Chinese zodiac
    Year of the Hare 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011

    Persons born in the Year of the Hare are talented and ambitious. They are popular with anybody and good entertainers which often makes them the centre of attention. Even though they are liked they are rather pessimistic, insecure and are afraid of changes. They almost never lose their temper and are very good-natured. In the business world however they are smart and make the right decisions according to instinct. Nevertheless they are no gamblers. Hares are known for their sense of art and for that reason often have beautiful homes. They match persons born in the Year of the Sheep, Pig or Dog.

    although they are two separate animals, the normal word for "rabbit" is "hare" in German. Arto Paasilinna's "Year of the Hare" suggests it is similar in Finnish...

    "The hare in Paasilinna’s book seems to behave more like a rabbit" http://acommonreader.org/year-of-the-hare-paasilinna/

    So will it be a Mad March?
