What I mean is, they should encourage more people to hunt these snakes. Just be careful etc.

They should just open a selective snake season in Florida. You just have to be very careful regarding the other poisonous snakes while your hunting the pythons and such.

This is ridiculous. Something needs to happen and fast. These snakes are breeding at a prolific rate and little to nothing can be done to stop them. The Florida Everglades is the perfect breeding ground and habitat for these things.

Why in the world does someone need a python as a pet? Do you really have the space to care for a 20-ft. / 200 lb. reptile? ...somehow, I doubt it. Go buy a kitten and stop being stupid.

The bad part of this kind of pet trade is that some people buy a snake thinking it won't get as big as they do. I had a reticulated python once and the pet store told me it would only grow to 8 feet. Imagine my surprise when I saw one at a county fair that was 21 feet long. The man said it wasn't full grown yet. I'm not sure what happened to mine since my girlfriend sold it when I was on a ship in the far east. I agree they shouldn't be allowed in the U. S.

I think they should ban the importation of all snakes from other countrys into theu.s.

People need to realize that it is just as easy for a python to swallow a 76 pound child as it is to swallow a 76 pound deer...
