2016 Python Challenge

Everywhere we go, the local news is always far more entertaining than it used to be back in Wisconsin.  It was on the newscast that we learned about the 2016 Python Challenge.

This is the python we saw captured in Shark Valley while on a tour of the Everglades
Now here's a fun event for the family!  From January 16 to February 14 there will be a python roundup, so to speak.  You could wrap up (pun intended) a Valentine's Day date with being the winner of the snake hunt.

There is training available to increase your chances of finding and capturing these snakes.

There's even a "drop off" location for the pythons you've snagged, how convenient is that!

So far 39 have been captured.

If you'd like more, I've included the link for the Python Challenge for your reading pleasure. 

Will we be doing this?  No way.

Long Live the Queen


  1. Where is your sense of adventure? This is a charitable function to rid the swamps/everglades, etc of this predator. Think of your civic duty. Didn't you talk me into taking Brent to see pythons and heckled me into putting it around my shoulders and neck? Think I have a picture somewhere of that. Is this one of those "Do what I say, not what I do" moments???

  2. Ok... now I don't know what would make me feel more uncomfortable; python or alligator?

  3. Ah, well...if you're not going to take part in this charitable event, then neither am I. Actually, I don't blame you for not wanting to go snake hunting. I think it's best to leave this to the braver souls. Hopefully they will catch huge amounts of snakes. You have a wonderful day my friend, hugs, Edna B.
