Florida doubles efforts to hunt invasive pythons

Standing in front of a hissing, squirming 12-foot-long python Wednesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis said he is doubling resources to remove the invasive species that's destroying the natural food chain in Florida's delicate Everglades. The state has been paying select hunters to catch and kill the invasive snakes on state lands since March 2017. It even hosts a popular python hunt for the public every three years in an attempt to control the tens of thousands of pythons that are estimated to be slithering through the Everglades. Scientists say the giant constrictor snakes, which can grow over 20 feet 6 meters long, have eliminated 99% of the native mammals in the Everglades, decimating food sources for native predators such as panthers and alligators.
