I know Australia has a rabbit population problem and it seems it could be set to get worse.

Here's a link to a story about Killer Rabbits.

Personally, WOW!!

I can't believe rabbits can kill a king brown snake. I woulda bet a million bucks that rabbits would either run for their lives or be frozen in fear at the sight of a king brown rather than kill it, and I would have ended up a poor man.


I think its amazing that in 140 years (rabbits arrived in Australia in 1859) rabbits have learned or evolved to kill such a large predator. This one has me thinking though because one nip from a brown snake and that rabbit or even a human is done for, so why would a animal without any weapons or defenses even attempt to get close to a brown snake and bite it. The rabbit population is huge in Australia from what I read so they are not faced with species survival which is normally the cause for such a extreme change in behaviour. What could have brought this about?

It almost makes you wonder if the wild rabbits in Australia have built up an immunity to snake venom over time? Interesting story.

Peace

Rabbits have had teeth for a long time already, so I'm not surprised the bunnies are fighting back!

I'll bet only a holy hand grenade can stop them. Poor snakes don't have hands though. Damned bully rabbits.

The snakes should learn a lesson to leave them alone.

Thats what I was also wondering about because as I said for a rabbit to willingly confront a king brown is crazy, one nip and its dead. So are thay becoming immune to the venom or do we have some very brave and rabbid rabbits here.

Its got me wondering about guinea pigs now, I've always had my suspicions they aren't the fuzy&cuddly little guys they seem to be since one took a crap on me years ago. I'll be watching them more closely now.

Are we not a bit like the non-violent rabbits....and are we not confronting the Brotherhood of the Snake?

Just goes to show, the small can bring down the mighty!

It's true, they're skittish because they are afraid we will find out their age-old plan of global domination and human slave labor building mini castles.

Right, so let's go ahead and get this out of the way.

You are seeing the revolution and it will be televised! My brother and sister rabbits have finally decided to overcome. You have nothing to fear unless you stand in our way. If you choose to, you'll be attacked by nasty big pointy teeth.

God, I can't believe you pulled that up.


Forgot about that one.


Also, in case anyone missed it there is a video on the link page that shows a rather large snake being attacked and chased up a tree by a rabbit. Very cool video and hard to believe.

It's all Richard Adam's fault for writing that Watership down
book. Once those rabbits heard the story they immediately
made alliances with the seagulls. While you were busy
throwing snacks to the gulls, the rabbits were lifting your
wallets. With the money from their criminal enterprise, the
rabbits all took Kung fu lessons and have attained the
powers of invisibility as well. We caution people strongly
to not walk alone in rabbit country. Sidearms are advised.
The Australian government is aware of the problem and
is currently training an army of ninja gerbils to counter the
bunny threat. Do not eat chocolate easter rabbits in public
as this seems to incense them. If they follow you toss a
carrot at them and run to the nearest human habitation.
Should you see both rabbit and gull together, pray with
fervor that GOd will end your suffering quickly. Victims
have been known to remain alive though half- eaten for
days in a sick parody of the easter chocolate ritual.

Yes yes that's all well and good, but you forgot to provide the information required to best a killer rabbit.

Allow me to enlighten!

It seems strange that most people think that rabbits helpless little animals that are bottom of the food chain, but they bite and it hurts and so do thei claws when they kick ( i know i'm a pest controller). Also they are actually really camoflauged too. Alot different from the cute little things you see in the pet shop.
