Scientists have discovered a genetically blended python in the Everglades. They studied 400 snakes from Florida’s huge wilderness. They wanted to learn more about non-native species. What they found is a new breed of snake. It is part Burmese python and part Indian rock python. It is fast and aggressive. Scientists think the new snake can probably adapt more easily to different environments and expand its territory. Because people released unwanted pets into the Everglades years ago, there are already too many invasive snakes. They are harming native species like bobcats, foxes, rabbits, and raccoons. The super-snake could make this problem even worse.
