Why would you put a FAKE SNAKE on a boat?
I saw a boat listing which had what looked like a 4-5 foot snake in the back of the boat. Why would someone do that? My first thought was to scare away birds and other animals which might try to take refuge inside the boat. The other thought is that it was a real snake and that it got itself trapped in the back of the boat and died.
So, Is it possible to keep birds, bird droppings and other unwanted animals away from a boat if there is a possible threat of a snake on board?
I've seen a boat on my dock which looks like it has an owl mounted on the very front of the bow rail. Is this for the same effect?
Anybody have experience with something like this? I really hate snakes, but if it works, I'll try it!
