플로리다 버마 파이톤 사냥
From the global resources of ABC News with Terry Moran, Martin Bashers and Cynthia Micvatin in New York City. In the wild bush at the Florida Everglades, three guys are hunting for a scaly sneaky invader. A Burmese python among the largest snakes on the planet capable of squeezing a small mammal to death before swallowing its prey whole. Michael Cole, Greg Graziani and Shawn Heflick have been granted permits by the state of Florida to hunt the pythons because while the Everglades are full of wild species, these Burms aren’t welcomed.
These men, a cop, a biologist and a snake breeder, each have years of experience catching big snakes. Armed with snake hooks and their bare hands, they start the hunt in an area where python sightings have been reported. After getting the snake under control, the hunter’s record measurements, location and other data that might help them to understand more about this invasive species. As much as biologist Shawn Heflick loves snakes, it’s his job to help eradicate박멸하다 the Burmese python from the Florida Everglades where it could threaten native species.
Hurricane Andrew was in 1992 female pythons can lay 30 to 40 every fertile year. Even if most of the hatchlings don’t survive, that adds up to a lot of snakes. Estimates of Burmese pythons in the Everglades run as high as 150,000, although Shawn favors a far more conservative estimate below 10,000. “How many should be in the Florida Everglades?” “Zero.” “Zero.” That’s why Shawn and his python posse무장대 have been hunting them day and night, cruising through the wetlands on airboat, ATV and on foot.
But in an unusual Florida cold snap, sightings of the Burmese python have suddenly fallen. “Oh, man. Something’s been eating him.” The predator has become prey. The snakes are dying. “Something just came up and was eating it alive.” There are still plenty of pythons out there.”
