|The Snake In Question.|
|The Reason Burms Were Banned In Florida. While a gun|
cannot fire itself, you can bet a python can lay its own eggs.
This one had 59 eggs developing inside of her. Wow! That would be great news for the reptile breeder/dealer but I think you can easily understand how that could have been very bad news for the ecology in the state of Florida had this one not been dispatched before those eggs were laid and the babies hatched. The problem sure seems bad enough already without more of them - a reported 99% decrease in medium sized animal populations in some places where these snakes are found in Florida! I wonder if they offer a bounty on them; maybe I could move to Florida and make a fortune hunting them and collecting the bounty, and then opening a roadside stand selling python fritters.
