Burmese Python

Tens of thousands of invasive Burmese pythons are estimated to be present in the Everglades and are threatening the fragile Everglades ecosystem. They prey on small mammals, bird eggs, and the natural balance of the ecosystem. In the remote southernmost regions of Everglades National Park, populations of raccoons had dropped 99.3 percent, opossums 98.9 percent, and bobcats 87.5 percent since 1997. Marsh rabbits, cottontail rabbits, and foxes effectively disappeared.
