Could giant snakes slither up to SC from Florida?

Oct 19, 2009 Full story: Island Packet 18

The image is horrifying: monstrous Burmese pythons slithering their way into the Lowcountry from the Florida wilds, devouring birds, pets, alligators, other snakes and maybe an occasional human.

Snakes have got a bad rap because of stupid people. They endure abuse like any other exotic animal in captivity.Those that grow beyond pet stage and become a danger to people should be prohibited & left in their own natural environment. I have a ball python that is an awesome pet yet it will never grow beyond 3 & one half feet. Hardly a threat to any thing other than small rats and large mice.

Giant pythons need a warm climate to survive. Most are too large to find a suitable shelter against freezing temperatures. They will most likely never get any further north than southern Florida.

I have nothing against snakes or any other wildlife. It is people that are ignorant and have an inflated sense of their own self worth.It always amazes me when humans move to get a way from the city and "be close to nature" and then complain because there are animals there! Duh!
