One more hazzard to Jetskis in the Everglades
Pythons have been replicating in the Florida Everglades due to hobbyists throwing them out there when they get too big. So the next time you're running the FL river twistys keep your eyes pealed!
The first ever python hunt is about to start........

I heard about that about a year back, dem be some big snakes. 3 people to hold it?
I think I'd be riding on my ski with the judge (it's a gun that's a little bigger than a .38 special) it will shoot 5 rounds... of either 410 shotgun shells or .45 cal.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- State wildlife officials have created a special python hunting season to try to stop the spread of the nonnative snakes throughout the Everglades.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says anyone with a hunting license who pays a $26 permit fee can kill the reptiles from March 8 to April 17 on state-managed lands around the Everglades in South Florida.
The season is open for Burmese and Indian pythons, African rock pythons, green anacondas and Nile monitor lizards.
Thousands of the nonnative Burmese pythons are believed to be in the region, upsetting the natural balance of the ecosystem.
Wildlife officials on Monday trained a group of hunters on how to identify, stalk, capture and remove the reptiles.
