The Burmese python are on top of the food chain, with no natural predators these killing machines are unstoppable. In the article “Florida’s Python Hunt” by Andrew Ng, the author elaborates that the Burmese python is too dangerous for the everglades and addresses the problem with a solution there is evidence where “they became too big--is threatening the ecosystem of Florida’s Everglades. With no natural
How is the presence of Burmese pythons changing the Everglades? 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 Changes in Local Animals To begin with, Burmese pythons are absolutely ruining the Everglade’s animal population. They are eating away these precious animals. These snakes have no venom, but they have other techniques to murder and kill their prey. Source one tells us
Burmese Pythons are overpopulating The Everglades, causing many effects on the ecosystem. This is affecting the local animals, the people, and the snakes themselves. The Burmese Pythons are overpopulating The Everglades. It is estimated that tens of thousands of snakes are living in The Everglades.
The presence of Burmese pythons is changing the Everglades. The Burmese pythons have change Everglades animals, human lives and the ecosystem. Some people think that the Burmese pythons are original from the Everglades but they are wrong, they are actually from Southeast Asia. . The reason that the Burmese pythons has a big population in the Everglades instead of Southeast Asia is that we de human have been buying them because of their beautiful pattern and dumping them in the Everglades when they grew up to their actual size, also they are staying in the Everglades because of the climate which is humid, snakes like humid climates due that they are coldblooded.
Burmese pythons are greatly changing the Everglades. One main point, Burmese pythons are changing the local animals. Pythons are killing all of the other animals in the Everglades! In the first paragraph of Source 2, the author explains, “With no natural predators, these eating machines appear to be wiping out huge numbers of opossums, raccoons, and bobcats, as well as
cold spell of January 2010, all of those pythons died (2010). All of this evidence leads scientists to believe that the Burmese Python invasion will stay in Southern Florida and not become a problem for the rest of the southern United States. Burmese Pythons are very elusive snakes and despite their large size, can be very difficult to find. In this study, tracking dogs will be used to find the snakes and their handlers will remove them once found. Dogs are known for their strong sense of smell and many are bred to hunt animals.
According to “Pythons eating through everglades mammals at a astonishing rate” states “From rabbits to deer even to bobcats, invasive pythons appear to be eating through the everglades supply of mammals real research shows” Although “Pythons eating through everglades mammals at a astonishing rate” says “Raccoon observations dropped by 99.3 percent, opossum by 98.9 percent and bobcat by 87.5, The scientists saw no rabbits and foxes at all during their study. But in “ Natural resources management Burmese pythons” says “ of particular concern is their predation of protected species we are attempting to recover, like American alligator and the endangered Key Largo Wood rat. However “Article 2 “ states “ This disruption in the Natural food chain has partially serious impacts to the ecosystem and may threaten many affect species in the near future. In order parts in the ecosystem people put honeysuckle nightshades( birds) are coming back then places without honeysuckle. But pythons eat birds, pythons are overpopulated and eat them also they may go extinct.
This means they're very big and capable of eating many things. After Hurricane Andrew huge amounts of Burmese Pythons escaped to the Everglades after the hurricane ruined an exotic pet dealers warehouse and freed tons of pythons. According to Source 4, it says, "Hurricane Andrew didn't help matters. An exotic pet dealers warehouse that housed nearly 900 Burmese Pythons was destroyed, and many of its' pythons escaped". Now there are tons of Burmese Pythons in the Florida Everglades and it has raised many problems.
Changes in the local animals, changes in people, and changes in the ecosystem. When Burmese pythons are being released in the wild, this can cause pythons to kill animals such as alligators, deers, cats, dogs, birds, and rabbits. Also, when these vicious beast are being released, this affects the ecosystem because when pythons run out of food, these snakes would start eating the Everglades animals. Not only that but when humans see pythons slithering around, people think that the right thing to do is to host a challenge and offer money to those who are able to kill the most longest one.
The scientists want to be able to educate people about these snakes, so they can find out how to solve the problem. The invasive Burmese pythons, are negatively impacting the population of other animals in the Everglades. These pythons do not belong in Florida. With them around, Florida’s small mammals and birds living in the Everglades will be gone for good.
In addition, certain problems has been making the Everglades worse. Sugar cane crops grow and thrive in the Everglades. Sugarcane is taking up lots of land and its also taking up land for animals to live. In “Can We Fix the Water Supply?”
