Yeah, it's skin looks almost as beautiful dead as it did alive...
Certainly agree these beautiful animals represent a real threat to other animals, indigenous to the glades, etc., and need to be dealt with.

There's gotta be a better way to control that population than via some cracker slitting the occasional throat.

Well now, there's a nice pair of boots with a belt and hat to match. Maybe enough left over to make a wallet too. ;)

There is an estimated 150,000 of theses snakes in Florida. There shouldn't be any at all.

The state has resorted to an organized hunt but they only captured 68 so that hasn't been effective. Maybe next step should be a bounty on them. They need to be eradicated before they destroy the ecosystem.

There is a place online where you can order a coin purse made from a kangaroo scrotum.

Would venture the guess that very few of this generation has seen the real effects of an invasive specie or plague on an environment.

Make that the last 2 generations.

I have a 16 year old granddaughter that couldn't tell you what a typewriter is, has no idea what a phonograph does and probably couldn't hand write a book report well enough to get a passing grade.

If you sent a class of middle school students into a library, told them to use the card catalog to find a specific book they'd be lost. For them, if it isn't on the Internet,it doesn't exist.

Unfortunately, she is the norm, not the exception.
