There was a loose rabbit in the White House: the Easter bunny.

Today was the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, a 138-year-old tradition that invites families to participate in springtime activities like egg-rolling. But before the fluffy white bunny landed on the South Lawn to mingle with 35,000 visitors, White House photographer Pete Souza captured its spending time exploring the presidential abode.

The Easter Bunny even met up with NBA-legend Shaquille O'Neal, who read Dr. Seuss' “Green Eggs and Ham” at the event. The retired basketball player and the bunny were spotted comparing their (large) foot sizes.
