Airboat Driver Finds 17-Foot Python Near Gator Park
A headless burmese python at Gator Park.
Back in July, Doug warned us about pythons taking over the Everglades. He wasn’t kidding.
Yesterday, while at Gator Park, Janie one of the key employees, came walking up to me saying “Hey Jim did you see the python they killed in the back yard?”
What had happened earlier in the morning was that Tre (a young but lifelong wilderness expert) had encountered a 17-foot python while he was alone outside his airboat. He had just heard some bristle in the matted down sawgrass and moving away from him was this monster snake.
I’m not willy/nilly, but when I saw the size of this dead reptile…I was almost afraid to bend down to snap the photo. This snake was a man-killer!
