So it's only been a month since I announced that November 9th would henceforth be Official Bunny and Rabbit Awareness Day. The inaugural year was a smashing success, and the reverberations were felt far and wide. Clearly the "internet" interpreted those pictures of rabbits leaping over tiny jumps as a challenge. Well, another species has picked up that gauntlet, and thrown it right back down. Just look at this talented guinea pig athlete! Talk about hang time!

Honestly, while the video does impress me with how far that guinea pig jumped, I am still convinced that guinea pigs really aren't well suited to do anything other than eat foot pellets in captivity.

Who knew guinea pigs could jump. That was hysterical. And she was a she, wasn't she? Thanks for making me laugh again.I'm going to tweet a rabbit photo you might like.

This video proves there are people as weird, if not weirder, than both you and I, Sam. Wow.

The pig impressed me too. I did not know it could do something like that. It reminds me of the zoo in Argentina I went to. My apartment rental in Buenos Aires was so close to it that I used to go at least once a week. Pigs there were nothing like this one!
