“They will take the Everglades over if we don’t do something about it,” says Florida Sen. Bill Posey, R-Rockledge, who is sponsoring a bill that would require the owners of pythons and other nonnative reptiles to pay up to $100 for a license, according to this story from The Ledger. Officials hope that the need for a license plus the fact that freed pythons are a menace to native animals will convince would-be pet-owners to get hamsters instead.
