Exotic Invaders: Pythons in the Everglades

About the Show

This fast-paced programme follows python hunters as they risk their lives to track down killer snakes which are threatening the fragile ecosystem of the Florida Everglades. Can anything be done to stop these deadly monsters? Will the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States survive? The Burmese python, a ravenous snake that rivals the anaconda in size and appetite, has gained a foothold in the Everglades. Since its arrival, the native animal populations of possums, raccoons, bobcats, foxes, otters and armadillos have crashed by as much as 98%. Exotic Invaders: Pythons in the Everglades follows the hunters as they track down snakes in the wild with their bare hands, and features interviews with scientists engaged in the battle against Florida's monster snakes.
