The Burmese python is a large, nonvenomous constrictor snake that has been introduced to Florida. Burmese pythons are native to India, lower China, the Malay Peninsula and some islands of the East Indies. These invasive snakes may represent a threat to the Florida ecosystem, including native wildlife. They can reproduce quickly and eat a wide variety of food items ranging from eggs to small deer. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) works with other agencies and organizations to manage and remove Burmese pythons. The FWC asks people to report sightings of Burmese pythons to the FWC’s Exotic Species Hotline at 888-Ive-Got1 (888-483-4861), or online at IveGot1.org. Citizens can also remove Burmese pythons from specified state managed lands during applicable hunting seasons. More information on this and other python topics is available online at MyFWC.com/Python.
