WHY FLORIDA IS NOT LIKE WHERE YOU LIVE

Seriously, how many reasons do you need?

Why does it always have to be snakes?

I agree with an identifying chip if these animals are allowed in the US at all. Then later, when they are found slithering around in the wild, the registered owner can be fed to it.

I think it might be a good idea to totally ban these thing completely. Did they not see that coming?

We're gonna need a bigger plane, Mr. Jackson.

So, at 207 pounds, how high in the NFL draft will it be going?

They nabbed a 9 1/2' and an 8' yesterday in my florida city. they didn't kill 'em though, they just relocated them in nearby city.

I didn't know that snakes 'roamed'. I thought they just slithered around.

I have no problem with requiring microchips or banning exotic reptiles in Florida, but it's rather pointless in New England -- we have an effective control mechanism here. It's called "winter."

"Harvey said none of the animals on the hospital's sprawling grounds were missing."

A few veterinary interns, however, have not shown up to work the past several weeks...

Home, home in McDade
Where the pythons are shot, then displayed
Where gators roam parks
On the bus, you’ll find sharks
Don’t know how to drive? You’ve got it made!

Python throws up hippo:

I counted. There are only 16 feet in that picture.

Well, it IS python season in Florida. really.

Now THAT'S what I call the Full Monty.

(and lol oneblank.)

They don't eat lawyers, politicians and telemarketers.

Dave, because moose's till weigh more.

^s

? Original type omitted. Niiiiiiice.

Trying again. Dave. Because moose's still weigh more.

Didn't "Python Control Measures" open for the ..... Hoop Snakes?

Y'all put little ships in animals down there?

(I think the editor must have been tipsy.)

But nothing discernible was found in this python's stomach, and Harvey said none of the animals on the hospital's sprawling grounds were missing however officials were unable to ascertain the whereabouts of Miami Dolphins' brawny No. 1 draft pick, Vontae Davis.

Surls told WPBF in West Palm Beach that he was scared at first but, pointing to a cousin who went along, said, ``I was on the other side of the fence, so I knew it was going to get him first.''

Lots of love in that family. I don't have to outrun the snake, I just have to outrun my cousin.

I now understand why Florida has so many firearms. I probably wouldn't have used a .22, unless that happened to be the size of the rounds for the nearest AK-47 to dispatch the snake.

lol Just Ducky.

Thanks, judi. I'm satisfied.

brilliant, ducky!!

everyone up, it's time for snake'n and eggs!

Eat up. You'll need lots of energy for school.

Buenos dias!! If you add bacon, I'll get some, crossgirl!

and YAY for the Duckness!!

Can you make bacon out of snake?
Boacon?
Snacon?

G'bye snake. Ya shoes, ya lose.

None of the snakes up here that big, but it costs trillions to feed them. Think I'd take the pythons.

"Okeechobee"? bless you!

Asps Giant Pythons: very dangerous... You go first.

You know these kind of news articles don't do much for the tourism industry in Florida. There's only so much that Mickey Mouse can do to bring in the crowds.

NMUA,

I now understand why Florida has so many firearms. I probably wouldn't have used a .22, unless that happened to be the size of the rounds for the nearest AK-47 to dispatch the snake.
Yeah, effective, but that kind of overkill would ruin the hide. Gotta be thinking ahead...

Make sure the shoes are the right size or they'll constrictor movement and be hard to get shed of.

Was that below the belt?
