Hundreds Join Hunt For Pythons Wreaking Havock In The Everglades

Everyone needs a New Year’s resolution. You know, lose five pounds, exercise more, rid your state of giant, nonnative snakes.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

These snakes can grow more than 20 feet long, and they reproduce rapidly. If you’re interested in joining the competition, check out the details at pythonchallenge.org. Wondering how these guys slithered their way to the top of the food chain? Well, they will eat just about anything, sometimes even alligators. It’s pretty gross to watch a python eat an alligator (trust me), so I’ll share with you this epic Gator vs. Python battle instead:
