    Where was the good journalism in this piece? The reason Burmese pythons are spreading across Florida is that there are no restrictions on the keeping or selling of exotic pets in Florida. Yet, was that mentioned in your report? No. Instead you brought some jackass from an exotic pet store to show off two more pythons to your normally wise and worldly host who should have known better. But oh no, he had to play the game too. "Hey everyone, aren't I brave? I've got a snake around my neck?" Don't you realize that such shameless displays only encourage more morons - because that's what they are - to adopt more snakes? Journalism is about connecting the dots. Realizing that one thing affects another. This so-called report was a text book lesson in how not to tell a complete story.

    That python really liked John. I hope it didn't squeeze him too hard.
    I heard they also eat alligators and crocodiles, and other snakes. If they do make it to GA, I hope they eat some of these rattlesnakes.

    I don't think this is a venomous snake, I used to have one. (but not that big)

    What's the story here? Escapee? Educational demonstration? In the last photo, what is the white thing the guy on the far left is holding?

    That is one gorgeous snake – I really like pythons...have kept boa constrictors in the past, but a python would be most interesting to take on. However, after saying that, I no longer believe in keeping wild animals in captivity on a personal basis as in 'pet' status.

    Just what’s the context of these photos? Are these supposed to represent the Hero’s?

    In a man's world, and in corrupted politics scene of todays, intelligent women like me are looked at as snakes and smart men as shepeards! That is why we have Global Crisis and an Imbalanced World within which a woman scientist with9 ground breaking books in 1994 gets censored for 12 years and no one reacts and everyone supports and when she guides all and brings her Global Peace Porgram home to save the world and finally is given a small window to respond and still her words being stolen without credit, she spells it like it is corruption and injustice and is given the snake pictures! Evolutionary change is in the air and yet you must have God's Tolerance!

    That is one monster of a snake – where did they find it? I would hate to come across a snake that big and I bet if I did I would get away from it in record time.

    Exactly where might one find, or perhaps more specifically avoid, such pythons????
