The Pacific Jackalope, also known as the Pacific Ursalope or the Cervidopsis, is a large, powerful grazer indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, though it is extremely rare. The name "jackalope" is a misnomer, as it is in no way related to the creature that bears this name.
Members of the Family Ursidae, and therefore related to the black bears, brown bears, and the polar bears, it and the rest of its closest relatives have become strict herbivores. This has led to their faces adapting to look strikingly similar to those of deer, although this is simply due to convergent evolution. However, they have also developed horns like the deer family, leading to some confusion among human onlookers.
Because they have become grazers, their eyes have begun to space out to the sides of their head and elongated ears for better hearing.
They are closely related to both the Alaska Jackalope and the Arctic Jackalope, which instead appear to be a hybridization of a Syrian brown bear and a Caribou, and a polar bear and a moose, respectively.
