The month long Python Challenge is going strong, and while we still wish there was a more humane way of doing this, the environment will be rid of a few snakes.
As previously reported, Burmese pythons are (running?) slithering rampant through the Florida Everglades and the Python Challenge has asked Floridians to hunt down the snakes.
Burmese pythons are not native to Florida (or the Western Hemisphere for that matter) and the local ecosystem is suffering because of them.
Take a gander (above) at a special report behind the challenge.
Again…can't there be a more humane way of doing this!?!

Sad….these poor snakes should be left alone!
The Florida Everglades will be hosting its annual snake hunting contest, called the Python Challenge.
All participants need is $25, and an online participation class before they get to go out in the wild and kill snakes for an ENTIRE MONTH!

This is not a sight you want to wake up to as a mom!
Tess Guthrie felt like she was living in a dream when she found a six foot python slithering in her daughter's bed.
The snake had coiled itself around baby Zara's arm and the mom tried to yank the crawler off. Feeling threatened, the snake wrapped itself around the girl even more and bit her three times.
Guthrie finally managed to get the snake off her daughter and it was wrangled and released back in the wild.
Check out the video (above) as the mum tells her frightening story!

Unfortunately, the python was dead when it was discovered but it's the BIGGEST python found in the Everglades EVA!
A necropsy was performed on the gigantic, 17.5 foot python and the discoveries were simply CRAY-CRAY!!!
Scientists finds AT LEAST one bird as well as 87 oviductal eggs in the snake, beating the previous record by two.
The researchers hope that their findings will help them learn more on the invasive species.

After the teaser for The Vintage Frames Co. with Amber Rose left us a little confused, we're glad that this ad is MUCH more straightforward and simplistic!
Check out part one of the sultry The Trouser Snake Project campaign (above)!!!
These French-made vintage frames were conceptualized in part by Mz. Amber Rose, who helped with the colors of the python and visual aesthetic of them!
Amber looks phenomenal and so do the shades!!!

In Australia, Atomic Betty, a huge reticulated python, has been put on a diet.
She recently weighed in at 302-pounds and is 22-feet-long!
That's insane!! And she's not even done growing yet!
She was being fed 10 goats a year but that was too much so they cut her down to four.
Check out the above video to see the giant monster.

A family had one heck of a scare this holiday weekend.
They found a 13-foot python in their pool!!
It was in South Florida, which explains why their pool was open in December.
Luckily no one was swimming and animal control was able to rescue the animal and take it to a farm further south.
Whew. Close one.
