17-Foot Python Invades Family Picnic in Florida

17-Foot Python Invades Family Picnic in Florida

Who could have thought that a family picnic would turn out so horrific! It has been claimed that a family picnic in the Everglades National Park in Florida was invaded with a 17-foot Burmese Python. It sent shocking waves around but park rangers managed to kill the snake. Nonetheless, the family managed to capture the python on a video.

This news has once again reinforced how pythons in Florida have become a menace for one and all. They have even reduced the population of rabbits, possums and other small mammals considerably. Even foxes and smaller bobcats are found to be a lot unsafe with pythons wandering around the region.

On the same lines, a Burmese python hunting contest is expected to start in the month of January which would offer a grand prize of $1,500 to those who kill maximum number of pythons, while and $1,000 would be awarded to those who capture the longest one.

Though the newly-hatched pythons are not seen as a major threat to humans, it has been made clear by reptile experts that Burmese Pythons are extremely dangerous and can gulp down anything from birds to large mammals.

There has been rising menace of reptiles from past many decades and that's what calls for more and more efforts to be made in wiping them once and for all.
