Luckily, it didn't chow down on some toddlers, because the 18-foot snake was found in time by a Florida water-quality maintenance crew!

They said they run across snakes from time to time, but this was enough to fill all their pants with snake-fear poop!

Prince William & Prince Charles On Their Way To Protect Animals! Royal Father & Son Make A Trip To Highlight Illegal Wildlife Trade!

Princes William and Charles wanna help stop the illegal wildlife trade!!

Prince William and his father Prince Charles are going to be pretty busy mid-February.

They're going to spend all their time between February 9th and 13th trying to help out animals by highlighting the illegal wildlife trade.

First, they'll head to the United for Wildlife Symposium at the Zoological Society London, then they'll head to a reception at the Natural History Museum. It's an event hosted by the U.K. government for the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade.

After that, they'll be attending the actual conference where the Duke of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are really on top of their animal conservation game! They've got one hell of a busy week!

And a lot of it has to do with Princess Diana's legacy.

She instilled in them a love of animals, which Prince William plans to pass on to his son Prince George… in the form of a jungle-themed room!

So cute! Way to help the animals, you two!!

Australia's federal environment minister granted Western Australia an exemption under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act which has allowed them to hunt sharks like the normally protected Great White.

Conservationists are obviously upset, with a Sea Shepherd (the famous anti-whaling vessel) spokesperson saying:
