Florida Everglades in serious danger of being wiped out

PYTHON SWALLOW ALLIGATOR DEER ALIVE IN THE EVERGLADES

Huge Burmese pythons set loose by their owners are believed to be responsible for the fast deteriorating animal life like the raccoons, opossums and bobcats in the Florida Everglades. Their actions are destroying the food chain and could have far-reaching implications with regard to maintaining the eco-balance in the region. It is difficult to correctly estimate the extent of damages.

Some of these snakes have escaped from pet shops in the hurricane Andrew in 1992 and have been living in the Everglades ever since – these have multiplied and have now become a menace to the environment.

These Burmese pythons can grow to be 26ft (8m) long and weigh more than 200lbs (90kg).
