My mom called in a panic yesterday..she wanted to make sure I was watching the children closer. she read in the paper that Pythons have been "growing in the wild" down in the southern part of Arkansas....they have found a nest of over 47, by the time the activitist lost their legislation to save them, (2 years) they have spread even further.... there was a picture of a 20 ft and over 200 lbs python that was killed about an hour from me.(it was bothering boaters last summer)... several have been spotted at a swamp lake only about 20 minutes from me. The newspaper article said they could inhabit the lower 1/3 of the US. This has been going for awhile, she was afraid with all the flooding going on around here, they would move closer...there is a small swamp right next to us.... Just thought I would share that tidbit of news with ya'll.
