Number of exotic pythons removed from Everglades NP up sharply in past year

Five-thousand is a big number, particularly when you're counting Burmese pythons. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the South Florida Water Management District, along with outside support, say they have removed 5,000 of the pythons from the Everglades ecosystem, according to a news release from the Conservation Commission.

That number represents an incredible improvement in capturing the snakes, as it was just last September when officials said the running tally of removed pythons reached 900.
