Have you ever been to florida? When you think of Florida do you think of the vast beaches and the ocean with the waves washing up against your feet, well some parts of Florida aren't as pretty. 28 miles east of Miami is the everglades, in the late 1900’s many people in the everglades and nearby cities were interested in giant pythons as pets. Because people stopped liking giant pythons as pets after a while and people started to let them lose in the wild.

 
Releasing the giant snakes into the wild caused  a 90-99 percent drop in small animals in the national park according to the smithsonian. At times these people didn't realize that the snakes breaded very fast. Now people believe that there are more than 10,000 snakes in the everglades. If you went to Miami you wouldn't notice this because the snakes only stay in the swampy places.The pythons are spolating the florida everglades and are eating all the small animals. Also the giant pythons that started in Florida are starting to invade other states like Georgia. A home owner in walton country killed one that snuck into his back yard in august of 2020.  In Miami the federal authorities legally can't stop the trade of these pythons inside of the state but they can stop any imports or any exports.


A possible solution to this problem is allowing the florida police to stop inter state snake trade. One person has a different solution,  Mr. Frank Mazzotti. He is a scientist who has been studying these snakes for over a decade. He and his colleagues have started to put radio transmitters on these snakes. He and his group are finding the female snakes and getting rid of them so that these snakes don't multiply. Trapping the snakes in Florida has been working but there are still so many snakes out there. Now the snakes have found a way to get to other places! Trapping the python snakes is just an ad hoc solution. The Miami police force can't stop the inter state trade of the snakes right now, but if they were allowed to stop the inter state trade of the snakes it would make sure that no mare are let loose in the wild.
