python capture SIR 250Last week, environmental specialists Jared and Sarah were checking the trail cameras off Shell Island Road when they came across this lively lady: a 12-foot long, 75-pound Burmese python. She was basking on the road. Their training came in handy: they were able to safely capture her and stow her in a snake bag until scientists with Conservancy of Southwest Florida arrived to take her away. The necropsy they perform on this snake will help us learn more about Burmese python natural history, and specifically, what she has been eating. Learn more about this work.
