I don't think that Burmese Pythons should not be allowed to be kept in homes or as pets. They are not safe and can cause harm. A toddler or an infant would not be able to protect itself if it attacked it. When they are hungry they will eat anything they can to satisfy itself. They’re not a safe pet to be kept in homes.
The Burmese python has become a predatory species in the Florida Everglades. The reason for this problem is the rapid growth rate of the species occurring all over the Everglades. The species have become pets and then thrown in canals. They also escape from zoos and move from other states because of the warm moist weather. The environment is an excellent breeding ground for the ever growing population of Burmese pythons in the Everglades. Mark Sedensky, Time for Kids, notes, “A python can produce anywhere from 10 to 150 eggs per year. Scientists have collected data the capture of 1,935 Burmese pythons in and around the Everglades.”
Competition is fierce in the Everglades. The playing field is filled with native species, hungry for a win. A beautiful door is opened, and majestic Burmese Pythons slither in. These Burmese Pythons take over with their huge appetites and sharp teeth. These eating machines don’t provide a benefit to the Everglades, instead, they harm the ecosystem. The presence of Burmese pythons are changing the Everglades because they are forcing many humans to hunt the pythons and Burmese pythons are wiping out native species.
The Burmese python is a beautiful snake that can weigh up to 200 pounds and grow up to the length of 23 feet according to Piven 44. These snakes are native to Southeast Asia and ended up in the Everglades. These snakes mean no harm but due to irresponsible owners these snakes have adopted to the Everglades ecosystem. The Burmese python has caused a decrease in the local animal population. The Burmese python has also caused a change in the little ecosystem the Everglades has. The view of people about the Everglades has also changed.
Florida Gulf Coast University is not only home to about 13,717 undergraduate college students but is also inhabited by wildlife. FGCU is approximately 740 acres and half of those acres are inhabited by wildlife like gators (FGCU the College Board). Alligators can be found in almost all bodies of water here on campus. Alligators, if you give them characteristic traits, would be actually considered shy creatures in a way. You know the old saying “they are more afraid of you then you are of them” perfectly describes gators. When calling a gator shy, all it implies is that they will flee from humans if one comes and approaches them. The only time Alligators lose respect and fear for humans is when they are being fed; They will associate humans
Burmese pythons have a large number of sharp, strong, curved teeth. They have long bodies that can strangle their prey. Burmese pythons have invaded Florida’s Everglades. These snakes are very vicious, and they have no known predators. These pythons will tear their way through the Everglades. They don’t belong in Florida, and they are taking over the Everglades. The presence of the invasive Burmese pythons, has a negative impact on the population of other animals in the Everglades.
The Burmese python are a beautiful reptilian creature, with camo pattern skin. They are originally from Southeastern Asia and have invaded the everglades in florida. You ask yourself how did a creature from Asia come all the way to florida? Well pet stores have been selling Burmese pythons and have made it out, and are harming the everglades.
Burmese pythons are a serious problem in the Florida Everglades. These dangerous snakes are constantly influencing the Everglades very negatively. The Burmese python is changing the Everglades by impacting local animals, people, and the ecosystem.
To begin with, the Burmese pythons are highly affecting the Florida everglades. These snakes are one of the largest in the world. They are killing the animals that are needed. The Burmese python snakes are also putting many people in danger. To help this cause the people are doing a python hunt to help kill the snakes. There are many ways the pythons are affecting the everglades.
Imagine if all the mammals disappeared then then animals would go extinct and will humans be next? Burmese pythons have both
The Burmese python is a compelling animal. They are native to the grassy marshes of tropical Asia. The python is among the largest snakes in the word, capable of growing up to 23 feet and 200 pounds. The pythons got to the Everglades after people started purchasing them and raising pythons as pets. When the people realized they couldn’t have a huge snake they threw them out. The snakes found their way to the tropical Everglades that have a similar climate to what they need. These snakes then started reproducing really fast and now there are loads of pythons roaming the Everglades. They are endangering other species who live there and are changing the peaceful environment to a dangerous environment. The presence of Burmese pythons are changing the Everglades by endangering other species, overpopulating, and affecting tourism.
The presence of the Burmese Python is negatively impacting Florida's everglades. According to the news article, Andrew Bill Nelson brought a 16 foot Burmese Python snakeskin to a meeting to prove how much of a threat these pythons are. In response to his threat, Florida has arranged a team of hunters and an anonymous reward to the hunter who can catch and kill the most.
Ecosystems are something we never think about. We let nature take over it’s way of life. What we don’t realize is that these systems could be corrupt by anything at any given time. This is, unfortunately, an issue in many places, but there is one place in particular. The Everglades, located in Florida. Burmese Pythons are overpopulating The Everglades, causing many effects on the ecosystem. This is affecting the local animals, the people, and the snakes themselves.
Imagine all the trouble of owning a puppy, owning a tiger is much worse. Imagine the expenses of that tiger and the dangers and hazards of owning that tiger. Do you really think it’s a good idea to get that tiger? No, it’s not. It’s a lot of work, and it’s also extremely dangerous. Exotic animals are not good to buy and have. If you buy that cute tiger, it will eventually grow up and not be so cute as it used to be and it will also be dangerous and strong. It’s also a wild animal and it’s very unpredictable, and there are many diseases you can catch from that tiger, and there are many dangers of having that tiger that you can’t forget.
The childhood dream of owning a pet monkey or tiger is a common one, but that’s all that owning an exotic animal should be: a dream. Over 10,000 exotic animals are trafficked into the United States each year, a multi-million-dollar industry on the black market. Owning a wild animal may seem fun and exciting, but with the ownership of such a creature, dangerous consequences follow. The ownership of an exotic animal not only puts the owner 's life at risk, but the animal 's and the environments. There is a common theme among people that it 's humanity 's responsibility to preserve the world we live in, yet there are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild. Despite the consequences of owning a wild animal, many people disregard the
