Rabbit & Snake Fight

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by hs200, Jul 6, 2008.

  1. This one caught me off gaurd.

    The rabbit would pull the snake backwards by the tail
    Ok! Lets Dance!!
    I'll Let Go if You Will?

    If you look close you can see rabbit hair in the snakes mouth.

    Hershel, what kind of snake is that? Poisonous?
  3. We call them Bull Snakes. No, he is not Poisonous. But he is a pretty good scrapper. We don't kill them because they are excellent mousers.

    We midwesterners are not accustom to snakes, so I'm glad to know that these are helpful in keeping the mice population low.

    Very interesting indeed. Who won is a good question and so is the why part of it.
  12. Gary actually it was a standoff. The rabbit and snake went under the pickup and emerged in different directions. From the view I had the rabbit was a pretty tough guy.
  13. Tim, these snakes are great mousers. Sadly they have a hard time telling baby cotton tales from mice. Several times around the barn I have heard rabbits squeal only to find they were about to become lunch. I have always been able to make the snake let them go. This might have been PAYBACK!

    bull snakes are awesome, I used to have one as a pet

  15. nature is fascinating! Great shots, really glad you had your camera.

    On UTube there us a video of a rabbit "treeing" a large snake, and another, of one attacking and killing a crow. Nature is always surprising.
  16. Let alone some rabbits...

    Nice shots! This scenario occurs much more often than one might think. Adult rabbits will frequently attack any snake they encounter as long as they believe the snake cannot ingest them. The bullsnake is not hardwired to constrict for defencive purposes, thus the rabbit is quite safe in its attack.

    I once observed a domestic hampster square off with a one metre long monitor lizard. He stood up on his rear legs and growled - yes, Alice, hampsters can indeed growl!

    Never understimate prey animals when their lives are threatened.
  19. Incredible! Never heard of such a fight before. Very good docu!
