So now that summer is here we are all going to be spending so much more time outside. Nothing feels better than stepping out of your house or apartment breathing in the fresh air, feeling the warm sunshine hit your face and just simply enjoying a beautiful day. We will all be spending a lot more time outside whether it is our backyards, the local park, the pool or the beach. Laying in the grass with a towel and catching some rays is definitely a favorite hobby of mine.

This brings us to today’s article. We have all been out in our backyards, our friends lawn, a public park or basically anywhere where the grass grows. Seeing a brown patch of grass doesn’t really seem like a big deal and most of us just overlook it and think, “What’s the big deal it’s just a circle of dead grass?”

While sometimes this can be the case, a brown patch of grass can be something much more than that. Now have no fear, the brown patch of grass is not dangerous and it isn’t going to hurt you, however what’s lurking just beneath it could be potentially hurt by you.

Confused? So was I until I learned about this little known fact about nature. As it turns out, that innocuous patch of brown grass could have a family of animals living right beneath it. In today’s story a man in Ontario, Canada noticed one of these brown patches on his lawn and then looked closer and saw the patch moving like the earth beneath had a mind of it’s own! He immediately called Ontario Wildlife Removal to see if they had any idea what this could be.

The expert from the Ontario Wildlife Removal got to the house inspected the strange brown moving patch of grass and quickly realized it was a rabbit’s nest filled with a bunny family just below the surface. He took a closer look and saw a litter of tiny hairless rabbits. He took some pictures in and a video you can watch in the video below.

The expert explains if you see one of these brown patches do not touch it under any circumstances. Even if you see a litter of ‘abandoned’ baby rabbits moving, the mother is most likely very close by and only brings them food twice per day. Many people don’t know this, but the reason the nests are usually in plain sight near human houses or apartments in the middle of your lawn or park is because predators tend to stay away from these places because they are afraid of people!

These dangerous predators who would otherwise eat baby rabbits won’t even attempt to approach the nests because they are too scared to come too close to the human population. Little did I know I was a baby rabbit protector! I don’t know about you but that’s a job I’ll take and do it free!

These baby rabbits are safe from their natural predators such as foxes, wolves and coyotes however, little kids, dogs and outdoor cats now become their biggest threat. Your best bet if you spot one these brown patches in your yard is to make sure your kids and pets can’t get to it until the baby bunnies are ready to leave the nest.

Baby rabbits grow extremely fast and within just a few weeks, that brown patch on your lawn will be vacant because the baby bunnies will be big enough and strong enough to fend for themselves in the wild. So next time you see one of these brown patches on the grass keep your distance and let your friends and family know.

Watch the video below for a full explanation and footage of the baby bunnies and what you should look for:

This Snake Tries To Eat Her Baby Bunnies. What The Mom Does Next Is So Unexpected!

Nature can be cruel and unforgiving. That is exactly what is on display in this recently uploaded YouTube video. The footage was captured by a man who seems to be looking on a safe distance away alongside his young children and wife. They chose not to interrupt the scene of survival and protection between a wild rabbit and snake. This video may be disturbing to some, especially small children, just so you are aware.

It starts off with a long, black snake coiled up in a shallow rabbit den. The snake has already captured and wrapped itself around one of the tiny baby rabbits and looks to be preparing to kill and swallow it. Before the serpent has a chance, the mother rabbit returns, and she is in full on protection mode.

The sight of her poor, helpless baby bunny in the snake’s clutches brings out her natural instincts and she immediately launches her attack. The stunned snake writhes around and releases it’s hold on the tiny baby, while the other little bunnies use the distraction as a means to escape and fly out of the nest.

It hardly ends there though and the mother continues to chase the snake further away from her babies and the nest. She grabs it with her teeth and claws, then lays down on her side and kicks out at it repetitively, which is what rabbits do when they fight.

Every time the snake escapes her clutches and tries to slither away she pursues, and keeps dealing it a series of blows with her back feet. There is no doubt that she is just as shocked as the snake is, and all the adrenaline, sadness, anger, and emotions she may be experiencing make her react fearlessly. After a minute or two of biting and kicking the snake’s tail, she lets off, and it manages to slither away.

The mother likely wanted to inflict serious injury to the snake so that it would go elsewhere and think twice before trying to eat her babies ever again. She knows that this snake will always pose a threat and it may potentially return to try and harm or kill her defenseless babies. She will have to move her babies and rebuild the nest somewhere else, safer and more protected, but at least she scared the serpent off and saved her family.

What Do You See First – Rabbit Or Duck? The Answer Will Assess How Creative You Are.

Looking at this image, what do you see first? A rabbit? A duck? Many people see both and depending on how fast they are able to see the picture change from duck to rabbit can shed light on how creative of an individual they may be.

The image happens to be a classic optical illusion that has been around for over 100 years. In 1899 American psychologist Joseph Jastrow used it in research he was conducting about perception and mental activity. He found that those who were able to easily change their perception between the two animals had faster working brains than those who were slower and had trouble switching between the two. He concluded that the more creative a person is, the faster they are able to see the image change from duck to rabbit. Therefore, this image can help to assess how creative of an individual you are by looking at 1) what you see first and, 2) how fast you saw it. Try it now!

When it comes to optical illusions, they are all about the eyes, brain, and perception. Specifically, the eyes visually perceive an image which the brain then processes as not fitting in line with or matching the stimulus source that it’s emanating from. In other words, it’s when you look at something and end up seeing something else completely different. You look at X but think you’re seeing Y. Generally speaking, there are many different types of illusions and optical ones, also known as visual illusions, happen to be the most well known sub-category.

This duck-rabbit drawing has re-emerged as one of the most talked about optical illusions online in recent days. Check it out and see how you do!
