My work titled Little Peter Rabbit has a Fly Upon his Nose (2018) explores and pays homage to the Bancroft families research into entomology, parasitology, rabbits and zoonoses. The work draws on the Tale of Peter Rabbit (Potter, 1902) to discuss Tularaemia (Rabbit Fever) and how rabbits and horseflies, along with ticks, mosquitoes and rodents are hosts to this zoonotic disease.
