They’ve been a problem for Florida for decades. Burmese pythons are not native to Florida. They are found in India, lower China, the Malay Peninsula and some islands of the East Indies. But pythons that have been released since the 1980s into the Everglades have messed up the ecosystem by feeding on everything from eggs to deer. The Florida Python Challenge offers up some big cash to would-be python hunters who can help rid the Everglades of the snakes that can grow to 20 feet long.
