That's going to make one really LARGE belt for someone.

When Mom was in the hospital briefly last week (blood pressure surged unexpectedly, nothing apparently wrong, adjusted medicine, fine now), we saw a 'reality' show advertised for following around a snake hunting team in Florida trying to get rid of invasive species. It looked like the most Florida thing I've ever seen, and my Dad's family homesteaded part of Tampa!

Mom noped out of that pronto, for which I can hardly say I blame her, but this reminds me that I wanted to look up that show. Help me O internets!

Could it possibly be on the History Channel? Swamp People Florida Edition or some such? If not then there's one coming-out soon anyway. This guy looks like he could fit right in with that crew. Probably any snake with any sense would be afraid to bite him, the contact high would probably kill it.  :hide:

Yep, Swamp People, Serpent Invasion!

Being "Florida Men", the show ended when one of the hosts went to prison recently.  ::)

There are lots of stories about giant Pythons in the Everglades. Just recently a world record, 17 ft. long one was captured if I remember correctly. We might've talked it up here in fact. Usually if it's Idiots vs Giant Snakes, the snakes win. The Intelligence level is about even.  :idiot2:

He's lucky the gator didn't have back-up nearby. Alligators LOVE dogs for some reason, probably their innate curious nature makes them good targets.
