Left coast - Sunnyvale and San Jose continued

Even though I had passed both cities many times on my journeys to and from Santa Cruz, I had never bothered to stop at either city. We had originally planned to go to Santa Cruz as well but because it was raining cats and dogs, we stayed around San Jose and Sunnyvale. It seems that both cities lack a real downtown with highrise office buildings. Instead you have a lot of strip mall lined boulevards complete with a zillion lengthy uncoordinated traffic lights. But after much confusion, we found the downtown that contained little resturants and shops and grabbed some dinner. One of stops was at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum & Planetarium. It is a pretty small place, but it has the largest Egyptian collection in the western US. For some reason, most of my photos are of mummified cats and other critters. They even had a fake baboon mummy. Apparently, back in the day they got lazy and just made general replicas of mummified animals. It's the thought that counts I suppose.
Err...what am I below?
Is this a slug hieroglyph? I don't know too many snakes that have bunny ears.

Snakes would be very interesting if they had bunny ears, don't you think?

Maybe the bunny ears would help the people with snake phobias.
