This article contains information relating to a hoax. According to Cambridge dictionary a hoax is "a ​plan to ​deceive a ​large ​group of ​people; a ​trick."

A bouncing Rubberado

Rubberado are strange creatures of Wisconsin and Minnesota told by the lumberjacks of the 19th and early 20th centuries.


This creature was a porcupine whose spines and flesh were extremely rubbery. It used this ability to bounce across the land. Once the Rubberado was cooked, its flesh became inedible. Apparently, bullets bounced off of its flesh meaning it could be armored and every time it bounced, it laughed.


This creature is considered a hoax, like the other lumberjack stories that are most likely fake.
