Biologist John Humphrey has developed a python trap that has been patented.
The trap is being tested in Florida’s Everglades where non-native Burmese pythons are wreaking havoc with wildlife. When the snakes became too much for owners to handle, they have irresponsibly released them in wild areas. Burmese pythons are not native to America.
The trap is a cage made of steel with a net on the end to trap the snake. It is a live trap so the snakes will not be harmed.
Hopefully this trap will work and rid the Everglades and any other area where necessary of this invasive predator.
