In case you missed it...



Thirteen foot python attempts to swallow a six foot gator and suffers an Alka-Seltzer moment.  Or would the purple pill have done it?  Experts speculated the gator was swallowed alive and managed to perform gastric surgery - from the inside (that's the gator's tail sticking out to the right from the ruptured python's tummy).

Authorities reported they've captured enough Burma Pythons (over 180) in the Glades that they are confident that the bone crushing rascals are reproducing.  All due to former pet owners who dumped em there.  There are reports of the WWF attempting to film some of the gator/python wars-of-the-water wherein each of these powerful creatures attempts to eat the other.  

Since some of these dudes are reputed to reach 20 feet, it can't be long before yakfishers are on the menu.  Don't look up!  Better  yet...

Be sure to.

I saw that in the paper also.Talk about about eating yourself to death.
I've seen some pretty wierd stuff swimming in the canals in south Fla,not to mention the birds lizards and monkeys running around .I want to personally thank the morons who dumped,flushed or released their pet that outgrew their ability to keep them.(What did they think was going to happen).I also want to personally thank the pet pimps that enabled the morons the oppurtunity to play with the ecological balance of the Glades and south Fla.

Just my.02 cents

I hope everybody caught the previous week's article about the breeding population of Nile Monitor lizards along the southwest coast in the Ft. Myers- Pine Island area, where it is only a short swim across the bay to Sanibel. These are the 2nd largest lizard species behind Komodo dragons, getting up to 7 feet in length, and unlike our local iguanas, are carniverous. They are also fairly aquatic. There was also the 40+ pound Pacu caught in a Hialeah canal. On the microscopic level, malaria, Dengue, yellow fever and shistosomiasis can all do well in the south Florida environment if given a foothold and inadequate mosquito control. Just another consequence of globalization and brainless, inconsiderate pet owners.

But what are you going to do?  Have you ever seen anybody dump their aquarium in a canal?  We all know they do but what next....?

This is a little bit of evolution happening here.  We may not like it but there is little we can do to stop it.  Most of the exotic species that are dumped here die with the first hard cold front.  Oscars and Peacocks took a serious hit a few years back when a cold front killed a large number of their species.  They survived and their young may be tougher against the cold.  Or not.  It doesn't always happen on the first fling.

For all of our technological advantages, we still are just beings affecting the environment and a force behind how other species try to survive.

Keep in mind that there is no evolutionary evidence to suggest that intelligence is a useful evolutionary trait.  Smart and sharp as we may be, in a million years we may be gone.  And dinosaurs were around for 200 million years.  

Arrogant as we may be we have never proved ourselves as a species.  We need to get over that.

Well Paladin,
at least it's an admitted theory.
Maybe it should be required to be taught in church?
Oh, no wait, that would interfere with the separation of church and state, right?
No, wait, oh darn, that only works one way.
shoot!:p
