"The jack rabbit and the turtle"

Translation:Ο λαγός και η χελώνα

September 4, 2016



Is this an allusion to Aesop? If so the common English is "the Tortoise and the Hare"


Wouldn't it be fair to also accept "κουνέλι" as Rabbit? I think only native English speakers would know the difference between a Jack Rabbit and a regular Rabbit


Probably only native American English speakers too, and I bet most of them wouldn't even know what it really meant. Rabbit/hare/jackrabbit are interchangable to 99% of the population - even though they are technically different.
