    Never seen this before, and thought it was full of bologna, but some rabbits actually walk on their front paws instead of hopping. Scientist think it's because of a gene mutation. It's a protein that is made by the gene that helps rabbits coordinate their limbs. This breed of rabbit is called sauteur d'Alfort. Apparently this gene mutation isn't limited to this particular breed of rabbit. Some mice have the same mutation. They too do handstands if they start to run. The music is annoying in this vid(turn off the sound lol) but it gives you the idea.
