  • PYTHON HUNTERS

DESCRIPTION

Florida has long been a prime destination for tourists from all over the world but now the Sunshine State is under attack from a less-welcome foreign visitor - thousands of Burmese pythons. But how did these serpents get there and, more importantly, how can they be stopped? Now, a crack team of snake experts have been given the job of finding out. In the premiere of Python Hunters, join Shawn Heflick, Greg Graziani and Michael Cole as they patrol the sprawling Everglades, searching for these out-of-control snake invaders. Together, they're treading uncharted territory as they try to find out how to bring Florida's unprecedented python population slithering to a halt. With the highly adaptable snakes having made the Sunshine State their home, can the team find a way to stop this python baby boom before its too late?
