The greater bilby is also known as the rabbit-eared bandicoot, once occupied over 80 percent of Australia, but due to decades and decades of decline, they've become nearly extinct and only a handful of them exist in remote regions of Australia. Australian conservation groups are encouraging public awareness of the greater bilby by promoting the Easter bilby as an alternative to the Easter bunny.

Sometimes kids are afraid of the Easter bunny but eventually we all grow out of that. Lots of people have pictures of their smaller selves crying on the lap of an adorable, smiling bunny. Unfortunately, some of us were right to be afraid as a child. These bunnies with make you have Easter nightmares all over again.
Around ten Easter bunnies (or hopefully, people dressed as Easter bunnies) were spotted at night leaving foil wrapped candy eggs on every doorstep in the village of Alderholt in East Dorset, England.
Clare Winton-Giles, a resident of the town, told Metro News that it's something a lot of people there appreciate. She said, "It shows there’s still a nice community spirit out there and everyone has got one, no one has been forgotten."
We're not sure what a crodough is, but it looks like a cronut with filling. It's a specialty of this UK bakery and they've taken it to a new level just in time for Easter candy.
This is the Creme Egg Crodough. The makers of this delicious looking pastry recreated the Cadbury creme egg filling to add inside and on top of the 'crodough' and put a creme egg on top for good measure.
You can probably skip coffee with this sweet breakfast treat. By the look of it, you'll be riding a sugar high all morning.
Have you ever watched Benedict Cumberbatch in a movie or on TV and thought, "Yeah, he's a pretty good actor but he's just not creepy enough"?
Well try this:
The chocolate Benedict Cumberbunny is apparently gilded with edible metallic dust and costs just £50 (about $70) a piece. The creator told Metro News that she wouldn't dare send one to the celebrity himself. She said, "I’m planning to send one over to his mum but not him. He might think it’s weird eating his own face."
Easter Madness (can we make this a thing?) continues with this trip down memory lane -- a commercial for Cadbury Creme Eggs. Personally, the idea of yolk inside of a chocolate candy shell is gross to me, but this is still one of most memorable commercials from my childhood.
Happy Easter, if you're into that sort of thing! As is such, it gets no better than seeing the First Family's dog donning bunny ears in this clip to promote the White House Easter Egg Roll, thus proving that even the most powerful American family will do something to embarrass their pet.
