Residents in the Collier County, Fla., resort of Classics Country Club are hoping the alligator seen dining on a python was enjoying a female version.
They lay lots of eggs.
“Anything that removes one python from the equation – especially if it was a female, for example – is a good thing,” said Kathy Worley, director of science at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. “Pythons are here, and they’re here to stay. They’re breeding, and that’s why we’re doing research with several partners to find out their behavior so that we can better manage them.”
