Lets see if you guys can guess what happened to our hibiscus. We have two hibiscus on our deck on, one on each side of door that leads to deck. There about 4 feet tall and are in pots. My wife called one day and asked if I pruned one of the hibiscus. All the limbs where cut off. I hadn't touched it. About 6 to 8 inches where cut off, looked like they where cut with pruner's, but only on one plant, the other had not been touched. The next morning we noticed the other plant was missing 3 limbs, the next night 2 or 3 more. So she sets up video camera last night. We now know what happen can you guess? I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't saw it with my own eyes. I'll reveal the answer after a few of you have guessed.

toasted, you win. It was a opossum. The dude went up the bush bite off the limb, held it with his paw, then put it in his mouth and back down the bush. My wife was sure it was someone, and I did at first. I mean its a smooth cut, just like it was pruned. I have never saw anything like that. :dizzy:
