Instead of lining up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat, Florida officials have decided to open a season for hunting pythons. Anyone who has a hunting license and gets a $26 permit can kill the snakes from March 8 to April 17 on state-managed lands around the Everglades in South Florida. In addition to the non-native pythons, hunters are encouraged to kill any green anacondas and Nile monitor lizards they might find.
