They are already using it. They feed it to normal people to make politicians out of them.
If we spread rumors in Asia about Burmese Pythons being an aphrodesiac a market might develop but I fear it would develop in Burma rather than in the Everglades. (Yeah, I know Myamar not Burma).

I couldn't click on it because those click bait sites overwhelm my computer and my patience, but it seems a snake hunter survived a dozen venemous snake bites only to wind up being killed by his wife.

I believe there's a joke about getting in bed with a viper there somewhere.

There's been Rhesus monkeys in and around Silver Springs State Park which is in mid Florida since a Tarzan movie was filmed there in the 1930's. I don't know if the Boa's are up that high, but the monkeys have become enough of a problem that a lot of people wouldn't mind if the snakes ate them.

17-18 footer caught by water district's Wildman.

See facebook Wildman and pythonwildman dot com for details of a wrestling match that he nearly lost.

Dec 1st seventeen footer python caught. Age unknown since growth is related to diet not time.

Finding snakes in the wild is incredibly difficult. Controlled release of snakes in a designated area followed by snake hunts usually get a less than five percent find-rate.

Python is apex predator having no enemies and certain creatures not 'programmed' to recognize it as a threat.

I still think multi spectrum imaging and artificial intelligence should be used but won't be successful until bounties are re-introduced.

Good Lord, hope they don't find the hamburger factory.

What I really would like to know is why do Pythons not eat each other?

Python Hunt:
753 pythons caught at cost of just over two hundred dollars a snake.
Hunters get 8.10 an hour plus a bounty. Cheapest removal system yet known. Although some 17 footers were encountered, most were six to eight feet long and were caught near roads and levies at night.
Water District managers admitted that 753 snakes won't make the slightest dent in the problem and that no hunting is permitted in the Everglades National Park.
