American Sign Language: "rabbit"

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


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. 



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