Do you think pythons are scary? Well if you aren’t then you will be as soon as you finish this book. The Burmese pythons is a very long and wide animal. Yes, people has them as pets. But that dangerous to keep them. Those snakes size up and can possibly eat you. Just think what kind of effect it has on the everglades and the ecosystem.
The presenters of the burmese pythons is negative it is impacting Florida's everglades. According to the news article that the senate of the committee brought a 16 foot long snake skin to a meeting. Its response to these is Florida's fishing and wildlife and sent out a prize to whoever finds the fattiest and the longest. The longest python found was 23 feet long and the fatties one was 200 pounds.
They have become so much they made a ad to help people kill more of them. The ad states “Sign up for the competition to harvest the most Burmese pythons or the longest one and win up to $1,500!” The burmese python has made a change in the ecosystem by becoming to much. the informational article states "Then, the python coils its long and powerful body around the animal, squeezes until the animal dies, and swallows the animal whole."
The Burmese python is a very powerful and extraordinary animal. This huge reptile is among the largest snakes in the world. This gigantic snake is capable of growing to twenty-three feet and a weight of two hundred pounds. These exotic animals are carnivores and usually, survive eating smaller mammals. This is no ordinary snake, it has no venom but has other deadly features. They have back-curving teeth that help clench their prey and the more the animal struggles, the tighter it gets. The Burmese python wraps itself around its food and squeezes until it is dead. This snake swallows its dinner whole. Somehow, people have thought this was a better pet than the family dog and went out to find one. Soon after that, they must have learned otherwise.
According to Donald Marcus, director for Corbett Wildlife Center, “there is a vast amount of data supporting the theory that scientists have conclusively proven the Burmese python population is a major reason for the
Although Burmese Pythons are from Southern and Southeast Asia, they were brought here as a trade for exotic pets. They can live up to 25 years; grow to be 25 to 26 feet long; weigh up to 200 pounds or more. Most people see them as a threat to the
The Burmese Pythons are a Native Species of Southeast Asia, but recently these pythons have appeared in the Florida Everglades and have been reproducing exponentially ever since their arrival. Some measures have been taken to reduce the population of the Pythons such as, introducing the Python Challenge, an annual Python hunting competition. The Burmese Python has had devastating impacts on the Native Species of the Florida Everglades. Some organizations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are outraged about the hunting of the Burmese Python in the Everglades. Even though PETA and other animal rights groups believe that Burmese Pythons should not be killed, measures need to be taken to solve the Python problem because
Each year, Miami receives 12,000 exotic pet shipments, many of which are the Burmese Python. A person who takes in a 20-inch baby python might be understandably surprised when it becomes a 12-foot, 200
Imagine taking a walk in the Florida Everglades. Now imagine that during that walk you come across a giant snake. In that snakes grip is a full-sized White-tailed deer. The two are battling it out, but the snake is clearly winning, it does not stand a chance against a full sized python. What could possibly be even worse than that would be a Burmese python battling an alligator and winning? It has happened even though the snake did not make it away from the fight. It looks like something out of a horror film and it is happening more than people might think. This giant snake
Have you ever seen a snake that can grow up to 23 feet long and weigh up to 200 pounds? If you have, then you have seen a Burmese python. These pythons can grow to be the width of a sycamore tree branch. They are native to Southeast Asia, but due to bad ownership, they are now roaming the Everglades, unbalancing the ecosystem. The Burmese Pythons are negatively affecting the Everglades by disrupting the food chain, causing an unsafe sport, and they are growing exponentially.
A big problem with releasing pythons and anacondas into the Everglades is that if there becomes so many of them that it disrupts the food web. So if the rabbit eats grass and a smaller snake eats the rabbit then a gator eats then small snake then
People who keep exotic animals as pets do not realize the danger they are putting on the animals or themselves. There have been around 2,000 incidents involving captive exotic pets that have been reported and 75 reported deaths between the years of 1990
The Burmese python (Python bivittatus) is one of the largest snakes in the world, measuring up to 5.74 meters long and weighing up to 182.8 kilograms. The species is native to southeast Asia and in its native habitat, consumes a wide array of prey including many different mammal, amphibian, lizard, snake, bird, and fish species (Snow et al. 2007). In southern Florida, pythons have established themselves across thousands of square kilometers including all of Everglades National Park (Boback et al. 2016). Research points to multiple instances of pet release to be the cause of their introduction to the Everglades as a foreign species (Snow et al. 2007). Python populations have significantly increased in both abundance and geographic range in the Everglades since their introduction, preying on a wide variety of native mammals and birds, posing a serious problem as an invasive species and apex predator (Dorcas et al. 2012).
