Everglades, Florida  - Burmese and African Rock Pythons

Burmese and African Rock Pythons have become introduced in natural and bordering areas of South Florida.  There are several ongoing studies looking at the distribution and impact that these introduced species is having on the environment.  Zoo Miami staff contributes to these efforts through participating in surveys and removal of these species in the effected areas.  They are then turned over to researchers who are looking into what these snakes are eating and what impact this may be having to native species.
