Pythonian Measures  

Seems like pythons are everywhere in the news lately. Is it all just movie hype? It cannot just be a coincidence that within four days we get this ABC News video (a nice one, if you can stand the annoying ads), this Tampa Tribune article, and this Indy Star article about a 19-foot python on the loose in Indiana.

Turns out National Geographic is likely responsible for some of the media blitz. They've got a new special coming up this weekend, "Python vs. Gator", that tells the tale of the ongoing Everglades battle between the native American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) and the introduced Burmese python (Python molurus bivittatus). I'll be setting up the Myth box to record this one for sure!

Thanks to Allan I. for sending in a link to this story.
