Massive Python
I got these pics in an email from my brother.. Supposedly a sheep farmer in Alton Illinois kept losing sheep so he decided to put up an electric fence.. 10 days later this is what he found.. Each wire on the fence is 10 inches apart.. That joker could swallow me whole no prob.

What in the ???????????? I'm assuming that the snake tried to bite the fence after it zapped him. If I were a farmer I would've crapped myself. Any word on where it came from etc?????

What makes me wonder about these pics and story is the fact that it would have to be an imported pet that someone let go or it got out. I do know this happens but chances are slim.. There are pythons in FL now according to some sources but they all came as imported pets that were for some unknown reason let out into the wild.

I doubt I would attack that size snake with a hoe..:bag:

I saw this pic some time, maybe a year or two back. I don't believe it was from Illinois, but it sure is a big snake. Buckfever made a good point. They are finding lots of exotics in FL and the southern US. Massive pythons and even cobras are finding their way into our environment. Look at those darn snakehead fish that have flourished in the Potomac. Russian Boars are breeding with ferrel pigs and here in the east we have a problem with a new hardier breed of coyote. I think I'm gonna need more bullets!:wink:

Going to FL
I'm about to go to FL next week to fish with my best friend. He told me that pythons aren't the only problem. I guess there are also iguana's that are an invasive species and they are all over the place. Him and a friend talked me into catching a few and cooking them up. I'll try anything once.

I'm usually not squeamish, but that picture freaks me out. I'm not afriad of snakes but I don't like them either.
