    okay being a mouse or a rat will be very worst and my life will be shorter or the shortest if I was a rat or mouse if I survived I could have survived everything but if couldn’t survive this means I will maybe be eaten up by predators or die because of traps

    Stopped at 2:15. I foresee the mouse, if not escaping, then gnawing a fair way through the wood walls if not outright making it out. Place your wager for bragging rights against my prediction.

    Okay I have a new problem....I ran out of mice, rats, and moles. Time to trap snakes. In Florida, we have Pythons that the biggest so far, 18 feet 9 inches. Cambodians have come up with some really good snake traps. All have to be staked down very securely.

    If the teacher built it with his students, I hope you didn’t wait several months to make this video, it’s summer vacation now lol. You could get a deal going where shop classes all over America build traps and send them to you, it would be awesome for everyone involved to see it on your channel but you’d need to get the videos out in a timely manner.

      Me and brother made a chipmunk catapult when we were growing up. They seemed to enjoy it because they wouldn't even attempt to avoid it and we could launch the same chipmunk over and over and it would just keep coming back for more peanuts.
