The German equivalent for the figure of speech "guinea pig" for a test candidate is "Versuchskaninchen" (literally trial bunny). The German Kaninchen means bunny although in English canines are members of the dog family.

Interesting, I assume it is derived from Latin cunniculus, which derived in such rabbity words as Old French conin or Middle English coney.
