Speaking of unleashing things into Rock Creek Park, I thought I’d post a link to the story about the python that showed up in Rock Creek Park this week. It’s a nice change of pace from obsessing over all of the exotic invasives in the Everglades, I guess. Speaking of which, if you haven’t had a moment of horror over this monster, you should really take a break out of your busy schedule of reading my site and drinking coffee. “UF Researchers find state record 87 eggs in largest python from the Everglades.”

There was a 16 footer that ate A 76 lb White Tail a few months ago…someday it’ll be a person. Not good. Save the Squirrels. Eat a Python.

A small movement started to encourage people to eat pythons, but they’re all ropey muscle and are pretty much inedible. Or at least that’s what I’ve been told by herpetologists. I guess I should attend a necropsy sometime and find out for myself. Er, to observe, not to try to eat a python. Yuk.
