I’ve Got an Everlgades Exotic Snake Story, Too
Feeling left out of all the recent conversation about exotic snakes invading the Everglades and Florida, I’d like to share a blog post I wrote in July 2007 about an almost-domesticated-python found in an employee dorm room in Everglades National Park. Okay, the snake wasn’t initially found in the dorm room, two employees put it there.
It was kept in the false bottom of a dresser and upon discovering it, a National Park Service official told one of the employees the snake could have killed him during the night. Yikes! Guess the employee didn’t snuggle up with the slithery reptile when it came to bedtime.
