The Invasion of Florida Continues

Two more exotic pythons have been caught poaching Florida animals this week. Follow the link for a list of other big snake stories.

Meanwhile, Japan will begin implanting computer ID chips in 650 exotic and dangerous pet species, including snapping turtles, pythons, spiders, in an attempt to regulate rampant irresponsible breeding and ownership.

It sounds like if you turned Tokyo upside down and shook it, it would rain bears, crocodiles, big cats, and poisonous spiders, to cop an image from Yann Martel's fine book The Life of Pi, which I've just completed reading.
