In his passion to become a magician, Billy Bob spent too much money on his hat and couldn't afford a rabbit. Hence, he had to make do with what was at hand.
He first looks down at his hat. Then he looks at his audience and, with a deft movement, pulls a dead rat from his beautiful new hat. His arm and head are controlled by cams that are powered by the screw and pin wheel.
Below is a video of Billy Bob in action. If, for some reason, you can't view it, click here.
