That rabbit's dynamite!

OK, this isn't exactly cute, but... well, see for yourselves.

And here I was, thinking it was CATS you had to watch out for.

This video's all over YouTube, FileCabinet, LiveJournal blogs, etc.  I got the link from Mon Schmoop Cherie, though. (Um, for clarity, this is Theo, filling in on a Friday morning.  Heh.)  So if somebody can point me to the original source, I'll happily credit 'em.  Happy Friday!

She's keeping her place safe! Hard on the snake, though.

I think it's terribly cute! That bunny's all "GIT ON OUTTA HEAH! GO ON! GIT!"

I envision the denizens of CO scripting out Teh Qte version of a certain Monty Python movie bit after this video.

Mr. Bunny sez, "Get out my yard, biotch!"

Stop that, you crazy rabbit, you'll get hurt...?

Go bunny go...?

Run! um, slither! Mr. Snake...?

My feelings are just so mixed!

Geez Louise! I feel kinda sorry for the snake! I wonder if the rabbit had a nest nearby - although mommy rabbits don't normally hang out near their nests - they don't want to attract attention to their babies.

That rabbit IS dynamite. She literally *treed* the snake. That's some SEVERE disapproval!

The best thing about this video is the ambient captioning. Those guys are funny.

ATTACK RABBIT!!! (who'd a thunk it?) I was so scared for the "poor little bunny"...little did I know how fierce bunbuns can be.

And -- Thanks, Theo, I was going into withdrawal!

Man! I was so afraid that bunny was getting repeatedly bitten at the start of this vid.

Okay, pet/snake story from someone I know who came from South Africa. His family had a nice big house, with many cats. Also, in the yard, many different kinds of animals than we're used to, including huge black earthworms about an inch in diameter.
In the living room one day, the kids see one of the household kittens batting at this long black thing they think at first is an earthworm.
Kitten: bat, dance dance backward, bounce forward, bat!

"Earthworm": coils up, HISS!
Kitten: bat! dance dance backward
Kids: SNAKE! DAD!
Kitten: bounce forward, bat!
Snake: HISS!
Dad: enters room, loading shotgun
Shotgun: BLAM!
Snake: dead

Apart from the snake, the only other damage was the the vast, butter colored carpet in the living room. Mom was not pleased.

I think I saw it on America's Funniest Home videos (it's my guilty pleasure)

I guess we now know why rabbits "bink" too.

Theo
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 07:57 AM

Why is this cute? Today I am underwhelmed by cuteness. I'm taking my cute elsewhere.

CutePoPo
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 07:57 AM

I am so not surprised. You should see my normally dociel rabbits, Daphne and Bean, attack me when I try to clean their cages. Pointy bunneh paws pow-powing it at you.

blueberries4me
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 07:58 AM

that was one determined bunneh!!! pretty funny except I could have done without the narrative.
what about the surfing meeces/ratties???? ;-)

ceebs
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:00 AM

Holy moly...poor snake looked so harassed. However now I'm going to have nightmares about snakes hiding in trees.

jk
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:00 AM

I think the "narrator's" obvious delight and wonderful cackling qualify as cute.

Jank
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:01 AM

The audio commentary is pretty cool. I'm also digging the chicken (?) in the first part that comes closer to watch the action. Go bunbun go! it's great to see a typically timid animal stand up for itself. :)

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:03 AM

Maybe it was a double dare by his rabbit buddies???

michele
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:05 AM

OH

MY

GOODNESS!

I don't know what's funnier, that a soft, fuzzy, cute, cuddly rabbit "treed" a gigantic snake, or that the man on that video actually said "dad gum" in real life!

Who says that?

Good, good laugh for a Friday morning.

Wendy
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:06 AM

Holy Cow-I wouldn't have believed THAT if I hadn't seen it! Very impressive rabbit!!!

Theo
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:07 AM

Amazing video! I have never seen a rabbit OR a snake behave that way! Anybody know what kind of snake that was?
Kinda makes me want to put ol' Elmer Fudd out in that yard-see how long he lasts!

I LOVE Cute Overload, but this isn't what I come here for.

Please stick with posting CUTE!

This video is awful, I hope it goes away.

Anyone who's read Watership Down is smiling and nodding at this FIERCE bunneh:

I LOVE the commentary by the guy.. Dad Gummit! Golllly! This was GREAT.

Golden
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:11 AM

This would come as more of a shock to me if I hadn't read Watership Down ten million-bazillion times.

Bunnies are bad-ass. Bunnies are SOOOOO bad-ass.

THis is sooooo funny I've done gone and posted it on several message boards.

Teri
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:23 AM

If you live with bunnies and snakes in the "real world" (i.e., cavorting wild and free in the back 40 instead of in your living room) then you can totally appreciate every last bit of hilarity here. Go bunny go!

Plus the commentary from the guy taping this? Priceless.

P.S. If you are having an epiphany with jk about the fact that snakes can climb trees, well, sorry to have your bubble burst.

What a brave little bunbun! :) It's amazing to see how animals can be so protective of their territory! My kitteh (10 pounds of adorableness) was out playing in our yard once, and we've got a lot of turkeys that hang around, and one was poking its head through the chain-link fence between our yard and our neighbors' backyard... well, my kitteh walked right up to that turkey and smacked it across the face with her teeny velvet paw! THAT'S a moment I wish I had on video!

Kelly
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:25 AM

Wow! Why would a rabbit behave like this, I wonder? I take it they don't normally attack snakes, which can sometimes have them for lunch (nature's takeaway! ha!)! And I wonder if it was a venomous snake. I had the sound off, so didn't hear the commentary (I'm at work!).

Mrs. P.
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:26 AM

"Cute" and "fall-down funny" sort of overlap in my world, so I love this video. I swear, that snake looks embarrassed.

And yes... the rabbit scene in Holy Grail was my first thought too.

OMG this is the most appropriate post to read on my birthday, guard BUNZLE! I'm so happy!

Snakes on a bun! Or...well, Buns on a snake!! Who needs mongoose??

Matt
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:35 AM

Wow, cute all around.

Bunneh: "Sonuva - I KEEL you!!"

Snake: "Oh, dear god in heaven - tree!"

Men: they sound wonderful.

 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:36 AM

Wascally wabbit!

I don't know which was funnier, the rabbit or the guy talking and laughing in the background!

Robbie
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:38 AM

LOL! That was great! The commentary is really perfect, too, I'd sound about that stupid if I was watching something like that.

Jen S.
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:41 AM

What's not cute about that bun kicking some squiggly arse? I ask you.

Michelle
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:42 AM

Snakes can jump!?!

PuppyMomma
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:47 AM

haha, that was great! I had to watch it twice and show the husband.

Lola
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:49 AM

When cute attacks...

Hannah
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:49 AM

Wow! That was scary to watch.

Bunny: Oh, what's this?
Snake: RAH, I bite you!
Bunny: No! *hops away* Comes back and bites tail
Snake: Ha, I really showed that-- OW! Hey!
Bunny: Get out of here! I bite YOU!
Snake: Augh, leave me alone! *climbs up tree*

Me:!!!

Courtney
 |  Jan 26, 2007 at 08:50 AM

I have never seen something like this before! Amazing! What a brave bun-bun!
