Default Snakes in Florida? No problem.

Worried about snakes in Florida? No problem. Just find a way to get a bunny to make your back yard its home. Here's an amazing video of a mommy cotton tail protecting her hutch of bunnies from a snake.

I once saw a mommy bunny do something very similar....protecting her hutch from a red tailed hawk. Awesome to watch the litte critter fend off an aerial attack....bunnies can jump pretty high.......the hawk lost the battle and sought lunch elsewhere.

Enjoy the vid.

Another I've learned from TOTV .. snakes can climb trees.

That does it. I'm getting a security fence of WATCH BUNNIES to keep HANDIE OUT. And yes Barefoot snakes do climb trees. Many times while fishing I've heard a rustling noise and a splash. That's the snake falling into the water from a limb that he just happened to be resting upon. Of course that only happens when I have to retrieve a lure that has landed in a tree instead of the water. And that hardly ever happens. Keep in mind that fisherman have a tendency to fib a little.

Snakes are fine. They rid the area of pesky rodents and other such critters. The problem is they eventually grow up and become politicians....
