Beat 360° 2/24/10

Ready for today's Beat 360°? Everyday we post a picture you provide the caption and our staff will join in too. Tune in tonight at 10pm to see if you are our favorite! Here is the 'Beat 360°' pic:

Brian Jones (L) and Ismael Vasquez hold a Burmese Python that was being used for hands on training during a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission nonnative snake hunt training session on February 22, 2010 in Miami, Florida. The training session showed prospective hunters how to identify, stalk, capture and remove nonnative reptiles during the hunting season which runs from March 8 to April 17. Some experts believe more than 100,000 non-native Burmese pythons inhabit the Florida Everglades and are damaging the region's endangered wildlife. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

    Your telling me this animal is smart enough to memorize a speech without having to writing notes on its scales? Maybe this could be Mrs. Palin's new "Joe the Plumber" for 2012.

    In a tough economy, it is nice to see that Tiger's handlers were able to
    find similar work so quickly.
