We put out the rubber snakes and they lost their heads! We presumed that hawks or crows bit off the heads.

Hey, I wonder if a big fat fake snake works to deter Canada Geese from walking all over our dock when we're not at the cottage? I've never heard of it, but maybe it would work?

Their droppings are huge and disgusting. lol

I tried putting out a fake rubber snake once...but my fake Great Horned Owl must have eaten it.

Camping can be fun.

Do you think we can get our rubber snakes on the 'endangered' list?

As far as I know, deer aren't afraid of snakes. If they are in the same area, the deer just walk past them like they aren't there.

Most wildlife can tell the difference between a live predator and a fake look-alike. The local Lowes put up an owl to stop birds from flying into the store and the last time I looked, there were two pigeons sitting on top of its head.

I use fake plants in my garden. I don't like snakes!
