Uh-oh...looks like that 'gator is looking for a meal. Looking at that picture reminds me why I should complain about my climate so much. I'd take winter over gators any day of the week! grin

Well there's no pythons in South America so they wouldn't be moving north.
They'd actually have to be moving across the ocean in order to get into Florida.

Pythons are actually from the "old world" (Africa, Asia and Australia) whereas it is Boas that are from the "new world" (South America).

Both types of snakes are constrictors however.

(This will be on the mid-term) shocked

The pythons were released into the Everglades by their owners and they have been breeding. They had a python hunt the other week and couldn't find any. They think the cold winter killed some of them. And...yes, Jerry, I was walking. Gators are very fast on land, faster than I can run, so I gingerly walked past this guy, expecting to be chased any second! We are both on a sand berm with water on both sides, so my running options were a bit limited!

It's a real shame that they "hunt" the pythons.
They aren't poisonous and they certainly pose no threat to humans.

Yeah I know, I read where they can run something like 30 MPH.

I saw a picture in the paper of a python that they did catch down there a couple of weeks ago or longer. It was fricken HUGE. It could wrap itself around you like nobody's business. I wish people would not let creatures loose like that in the wild. If you can't handle it, don't own it.

The northern movement of pythons makes the news about once a month, here. I think the worry is over pets and small children.

But Bob, I'm a little worried--did you really just write that alligators are fast on land, and that you walked right by one? Is that, uh, safe?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JERRY!

Here's your BIRTHDAY present! Can you guess what it is?
It's so you can fly me to your cabin this year, because the directions you gave me last year were just so bad!

Will have a birthday cake for you before the day's out too! grin

Jake, I gingerly walked past that gator. It didn't seem aggressive, besides it was a 2 mile hike back the other way! H - it's in the low 90's here. Warmer than usual. The kids have been swimming for a few weeks already.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I took off late Thursday evening after finishing up with the Gilmore concert here at Calvin College. I had to stay mid-way to intermission just in case but, shorty after that, we headed up to the cottage for a long weekend. We had a blast! We came home a little while ago. I needed that get away badly..

Funny huh? Dog don't think so.
