Florida has a python problem which just got worse. According to a story on National Geographic African rock pythons have been found in the wild in Florida
From National Geographic:
Already squeezed by the invasion of the giant Burmese python, Florida now faces what one scientist calls one of the U.S. state’s “worst nightmares.”
Africa’s largest snake-the ill-tempered, 20-foot-long (6.1-meter long) African rock python-is colonizing the U.S. state, new discoveries suggest.
Six African rock pythons have been found in Florida since 2002. More troubling, a pregnant female and two hatchlings have been found, which means the aggressive reptiles have set up house.
