    python / monitor lizard hunting season in florida

    I watched a fascinating documentary on non native invasive species in Florida last night. Who would have thought people could go python hunting in the USA? I think the pic in the article has been photo shopped. I am not exactly sure why it just does not look right to me for some reason.

    EEEKS that's a big ass snake. Snakes don't really frighten me I just happen to dislike them and believe strongly they belong FAR FAR away from me. I grew up catching garter (gardner?) snakes and dealing with bull snakes in orchards but I also grew up where rattle snakes are common so I don't wait around to see what type it is.

    People in FL have turned their "pet" snakes loose and it's caused a huge problem with boas and pythons breeding and then showing up to eat small dogs and possibly kids.

    Hunt On! Those things don't belong there Sad
