Ewwww, I could have done without that before going to bed.
You're such as girl.
AWESOME!!!! One less snake in this world!
Hence, everything in moderation;
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:
I think we ought to feed the owners to the snakes.
Heh. Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
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! ). 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?
