Mom Rabbit Fights off Snake to Save Her Babies

After realizing the snake killed at least one of her babies, the heroic hare relentlessly chased and attacked the snake until it slithered away in defeat.

Mother rabbits are fiercely protective of their babies. Weak, slow, and helpless, their eyes don't even open until almost a week after birth, making them an easy dinner for many predators: Weasels, rats, cats, and of course snakes, to name a few.
