Datura and animals

Leesburg, FL(Zone 9b)

I just got some seeds for White MoonFlower, and I had no idea they were toxic until i read about it.

I have a field (State property) aside my yard, where i was planning on planting these. The field is filled with rabbits/babies and various other wild life.

Now I'm leery of planting them in case some of the animals take a nibble and die. (that would break my heart)

Are most animals "smart" enough to stay away, or have any of you noticed local wild life dying due to the toxicity of these plants?

TIA,

terese
