File photo: Florida python hunters.

For years we’ve heard about how pythons released into the Everglades has ravaged the ecosystem. Florida has paid big bucks to hunters to get rid of them, but until now there’s not much more they could do. They couldn’t use thermal cameras to find them because they’re cold-blooded. But Channel 8 says a new kind of camera instead uses “special wavelengths” that helps find the snakes. They can be strapped to a drone. That info can be sent to hunters.
