At work in the Everglades.

I once helped a couple of friends track and trap anacondas (and pythons) in the southernmost tip of the Florida Everglades National Park. These nasty creatures are taking over the ecosystem there and it’s alarming not only local government but residents as well. Officials now scramble to prevent them from spreading north. Researchers had reported species of indigenous wildlife rapidly disappearing. They include raccoons, bobcats, marsh and cottontail rabbits, and even foxes. They are afraid that the snakes are responsible. Officials are currently finding ways to avert further damage by slowing down or stop the snakes from moving to Georgia and Louisiana.
