You are so right about it being bad for the environment! Several large pythons have escaped (or were abandoned because they were too big….) into the Everglades and are wreaking havoc with the ecosystem. The snakes have been reproducing and their population has exploded. As Florida recedes beneath the encroaching ocean, and things heat up, states further north will need to adopt measures to keep these snakes at bay——-though it seems like a lost cause at this point. :(
