OK now about the topic...
ONLY 11 snakes killed makes a sad statement as to the hunters ability...
From what I've read concerning the population of iguanas, pythons and boas in Flordia that low number of kills comes as a real surprise..
Snakes do hide well but still it's hard to believe only 11 were killed..
I hope they put a bounty on the darn things...
and I'd think more people would be hunting them just for the skins alone... They are worth a pretty penny...

Did you see the size of one of those things? The width of its body was chilling. Could probably swallow a human whole without much effort. You have to wonder whether someone released these pets just for the thrill of seeing how big they get. It has happened where I live, but fortunately they can't survive the cold temps here. Same thing with alligators. A few were found at a quarry near my town a few years ago. I've read stories about pet snakes growing to enormous sizes and one escaped from it's enclosure and killed a small child in the home.

I know it seems really bizarre that only 11 were taken.. Those snakes get huge! I've read and about them eating peoples pets and not just the small ones.. Then there is this...



I hope the gators win!!!

How many humans did the SANKES check in the first 3 day's. Bet the snakes won the first round. We will find out when the missing persons report for Flordia comes out.
