This week we learn from Ian Bartoszek, a biologist with The Conservancy of SW Florida, where he describes the recent capture of an 18 foot, 217 pound Burmese python in the Florida Everglades and more. Ian and his staff have dedicated their lives to protecting the Everglades from this invasive species, and so far have removed an astonishing 26,000 pounds of these snakes. The stories are crazy! Later, retired Mississippi biologist Jim Lipe, tells the random story of how he was bitten by a cottonmouth, causing his arm to swell to the size of his leg. Cuz joins us, and stands in his chair for most of the recording. You’re not going to want to miss one. Listen, Learn and Enjoy!
