I do not have pythons. The pythons are in south Florida. I live in northwest Florida. To get to the pythons, I would have to drive at least ten hours. The swamps in my part of Florida only have the usual compliment of indigenous deadly animals such as cottonmouths, alligators, rattlesnakes, coral snakes, bears, panthers*, wild hogs**, and mosquitos.
* The edjicated folks at the Florida Wildlife Commission will tell you that there are no panthers/pumas/cougars in this part of Florida, but I've seen one myself and heard several firsthand accounts of sightings. I think the panthers just have an aversion to game wardens.
** No, wild hogs aren't truly indigenous. They're descendants of Spanish colonial era livestock escapees. But if you've been part of the landscape for over 400 years....
