Deer-Eating Python Documented by Conservancy of Southwest Florida

Imagine being out deep in the wild and coming across a large Burmese python eating a white-tailed deer, bigger than itself. This is what the biologist team at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida discovered while looking for pythons.

Ian Bartoszek, a biologist that was present during the discovery, says: “This observation is another important piece of evidence for the negative impact invasive Burmese pythons are having on native wildlife across the Greater Everglades Ecosystem”

We went to the conservancy to talk to the biologists about all things python, and to learn what to do if we come across one.

They have a passion for wildlife, and they explain to us that it is difficult having to put the snakes down.

Although the pythons are eating big preys like deers and alligators, fortunately these snakes have no interest in attacking humans.
