The easter hare

There are lots of conflicting stories and legends about Oestre(Easter), the goddess of spring, and her hare. Some say he started as a little wounded bird and she turned him into a hare so he could run from his enemies, the only birdlike part of him that remained was that he could lay eggs.

The hare eventually evolved into the easter bunny. I like the idea of an easter hare much better.
