I'm not a snake fan (and if you're not either stop reading now) but I've seen this same story four times in the news/journal/tv/internet so it must be a news-worthy problem. Apparently a giant hybrid species of Burmese/African Rock python is invading the Florida Everglades (read about it here and here...). Apparently "Florida now faces what one scientist calls one of the U.S. state's 'worst nightmares.'" Yikes. Who knew?
