"Now, a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) suggests the python problem could slither beyond the “River of Grass” and affect the rest of Florida.

The findings, published in the journal Ecology and Evolution, show that some of the pythons found in the Everglades are, in fact, hybrids."

yeah, someone might end up like that poor guy in the Philippines who went out to his garden at night and ended up in the belly of the beast.

Instead of "Lions and tigers and bears, oh my" I think the Florida song should be "Alligators and pythons and crocodiles, oh my!"

Unfortunately it's the FAULT of people that release into the wild pets they can no longer maintain, love or need. This is how this MESS got started.

A shame, and it really is out of control. Same in S Fla with the nasty, dirty Iguanas, same frikken scenario.

Totally out of control because the state failed to nip it in the bud back in the 1980s, when the problem first showed up. So that would have been mainly on Bob Graham's watch, and then Bob Martinez. Not to blame the state, though, because you are right, it's the fault of the people who released their pets.

The thing is, it's not funny because these snakes can make their way into a home, given the right opening. I think they can also drop from trees, which could be a danger to hikers.

According to the map in the article, they've been sighted well north of Tampa. And I'll bet they're firmly ensconced in the Okefenokee Swamp already. Not to mention the Ocala National Forest.
