The invasive Burmese Python
Also know as Python bivittatus
Burmese python in Florida
The Burmese python had an established population in Florida in the year of 2000, and has been growing rapidly. The reason for the rapid increase of these snakes is because when a mom gives birth she will give birth to about 50-100 baby snakes. In the year 2008 Florida National Park services reported the removal of 311 Burmese pythons from the everglades.
What can People do about it?
- One thing scientist have been working on is creating a pathogen to try to remove the snakes, this is very hard because if they dont get it right it could harm other native species.
