Dangers to the Ecosystem

Burmese Pythons have started invaded the Everglades. They have disturbed the food web. Pythons are the top predators on the food web. They are invading the habitat of the natural animals that are native from there. The pythons are killing, harming, and disturbing animals that are on the top of the chain.
Where do they originate from?

The first step to getting rid of the pythons is by getting an open permit. It is called the Burmese Python Removal permit. We will need some extra hands for help so we will interview some applicants to see if they are illegible for the job.

Burmese Pythons in the Everglades
The next step will be to destroy the eggs. Once the eggs are found they can be disposed. They can get put in a special freezer and freeze the eggs.
The Burmese pythons is one of the five largest species of snakes in the world. The Burmese python are native to South and Southeast Asia.
Common name: Burmese Python
Scientific name: Python bivitattus
Average life span in the wild: 20 to 25 years
Size: 16 to 23 feet
Weight: up to 200 lbs.
Once the steps are done hopefully the pythons population will slowly start decreasing. This will be done at a low price and the natural animals of the Everglades will go back to there regular are undisturbed food chain.
