Why the bunny rabbit has wiggly slits for a nose

The Moon sent the Rabbit to the earth to inform humans that as she died away and rose again, so humankind could die and rise again.

The Moon said to the Rabbit, "Go the humans and tell them, 'Like as I die and rise to life again, so you also shall die and rise to life again.'"

The Rabbit went to the leader of the humans, and said instead, "Like as I die and do not rise to life again, so you shall also die, and not rise to life again."

When Rabbit returned, the Moon asked, "What did you say to the humans?"

Rabbit said, "I have told them, 'Like as I die and do not rise to life again, so you shall also die and not rise to life again.'"

The moon in her anger then took a great big stick and hit the Rabbit on his nose, which is why the Rabbit has a slit nose and constantly wiggles it from soreness to this very day.

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.
