Invasive species threaten Florida

An African Rock Python in the wild. This picture was taken at South Africa's Kruger National Park. The snake has just killed and started eating a big male vervet monkey. The largest snake in Africa, a powerful constrictor that consumes goats, wart hogs and crocodiles, the rock python has been found near Florida's Everglades. In 2009, authorities investigated the discovery of three African rock pythons in western Miami-Dade County.
