The Snake Hunter
Over recent years, The Everglades has become overrun with Burmese pythons. Many believe this non-native species was kept on the exotic pet scene, and then released into The Everglades when they became too big to care for. With no natural predators their numbers escalated, resulting in mass ecological damage and the eradication of small mammal species. In order to combat the problem, the authorities now offer bounties to snake hunters.

انتشرت في السنوات القليلة الماضية مجموعات من الثعابين البورميّة في منطقة إيفرجلادز وبدأت تسيطر عليها. ويسري اعتقاد بأنّ هذه الفصيلة غير المحلّية كانت تُستقدم كحيوانات أليفة استوائية وبعد ذلك كان يتمّ إطلاقها إلى البريّة بعد أن تصبح كبيرة للغاية فيصعب الاعتناء بها. وحيث أنّه لا وجود لمفترسات طبيعيّة لهذه الفصيلة في إيفرجلادز، بدأت أعدادها تتزايد بشدّة وبدأت تقضي على فصائل من الثديات الصغيرة. وللحدّ من هذه المشكلة، بدأت السلطات تقدّم جوائز ماليّة لصائدي الأفاعي.
