10,000 Birds

The invasive Burmese Python ( Python molurus ) is well established in the Florida Everglade. Another species of Python, the African Python ( Python sebae ) has established a small population in the 2,877-acre Bird Drive Area (BDA) in South Florida. The best chance to catch a Python is during a cold front.

Witherspoon in Trouble for Python Purse

Critter News

For some bizarre reason (hopefully just ignorance), Reese Witherspoon has pissed off animal rights activists by purchasing and carrying around a purse made out of python skin. Python skinning is horrible, brutal and repulsive. And it's illegal for her to have it at least in the State of California. And she paid $4,000 for it.

Southern Boobook near Broome

10,000 Birds

For those of you that miss me mentioning some of the other wildlife around Broome I think I should mention the Black-headed Python we also saw last week! Black-headed Python measuring. Black-headed Pythons are only in the north of Australia. The snake had sadly been hit by a vehicle and was off the edge of the highway.

Foreign animals surviving in other climates

Reddit Animals

I’d also be interested in speculation on invasive species similar to what happened with rabbits in Australia or the Burmese Python in Florida. When I say animals, I was thinking more of large mammals (elephants, buffalo, cheetahs etc…) but other animals are welcome except for obviously domesticated ones.

Followup: Witherspoon Will Stop Carrying Python Purse

Critter News

I don't know what she's going to do with it, but at least she'll stop carrying it. She's supposedly a vegetarian and is friends with Walk the Line co-star Joaquin Phoenix who is a huge animal rights activist and vegan. I still don't understand what she was doing. She knew it was an animal skin.and she spent $4,000 on it? PETA is very happy.
