    There are pythons in the Everglades?! :surprised Oh, I see. People who don't want the snakes as pets anymore just drop them off wherever. Aren't there laws against that? :grumpy:

    Heh. Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. :devil:
    The article says that some people let the snakes go because they become afraid of them (Yes, I would be afraid of a 13-foot python too - that's why I DON'T OWN ANY! :rolleyes:). So - yeah - here's the thinking: I bought this snake and now I'm afraid that it will hurt me. So I will just dump it off somewhere where it can hurt other people. Oy.
    I wonder if the people who sell exotic animals take any pains to educate their customers. "This is just a baby. If you feed it, it will grow. Introducing non-native plants and animals into an ecosystem can have serious, negative consequences..." Are there any responsible exotic/dangerous-pet owners here? What did you have to do to get the pet? Did the seller tell you anything?
