It was reported last month that the biodiversity in the Everglades is greatly affected by the increasing population of Burmese pythons in the area. The pythons are said to be feeding on smaller animals like rabbits, rats and squirrels which makes the number of these small animals decline. But Florida might just found the perfect solution to that: public and legal hunt for invasive Burmese pythons.
The last python hunt occurred last 2013 where about 1,600 people participated in. The next Python hunting challenge is scheduled for early 2016 as the registration is open for participants this coming October.
