American Sign Language: "rabbit"


The sign for "rabbit" shows two ears flopping.
Use "U" handshapes and bend at the large knuckles twice.

RABBIT:

Hmmm...I'm going to redo that graphic someday and do the palm orientation of each hand more towards the back (bunny ears flop toward the back a bit, not straight out to the sides).
 



There is another sign for "rabbit" that I think of as meaning "bunny" (but both versions mean rabbit or bunny).

 

Hold "B"-hands (flat hands actually) on the upper sides of your head (as if they were bunny ears). The palms are facing backward. Fold your "ears" back twice. 

BUNNY / RABBIT: 


 



Notes:
If the palms were facing forward, this sign would mean) "donkey." If facing forward and using a single movement it can mean "stubborn."
