The adorable brown furry hopper could have been protecting her baby rabbits, but it looks so small itself, it’s a wonder how it managed to fight off the snake.

As they face head on, it looks like it would end in tears for the poor rabbit, but the floppy-eared bunny managed to defend itself.

Mike Reardon, from Denver, Colorado, visited the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg in his native Colorado, when he walked over an elevated walkway to look down on the animals.

He said: “You could see all the animals running around in their natural habitats and while I was looking over the Lion Habitat, a Bull Snake coiled up as a rabbit got closer and closer.

“I thought the rabbit didn’t see him but as I watched, the rabbit was attacking the snake.

“It kept jumping out the way when the snake struck back, but the rabbit didn’t ever run off, it only came after the snake again and again.

“It seemed to go on for ages, maybe about 10 minutes, until the snake eventually gave up and slid off in the opposite direction.”
