Bamboo Fountains

Obviously budget will play a role in the end choice. If you have never had experience with these type of fountains before then consider the best know type known as the Deer Chaser.

The Deer Chaser is a popular fountain with an interesting history. It was originally developed and used by Japanese farmers as a method to ward off wildlife. It's probably the oriental version of a scarecrow with deer the primary target.

They are very effective in warding off animals because of the moving parts of the fountain.
