    If the state would have left the 'necks alone years ago we would have wrapped the python problem up by now. The good old boys were cleaning them up until the state stepped in and cracked down on the hunting of them. Now they're in panic and effectively paying the same people to go hunt them when they were doing it for free before, just as something to do while they drank beer.

    28 degrees here in north flordia would like to see the spread of pythons slowed down. Lion fish suck also. Hogs are doing well .Kill it and grill it .

    It's 58 here in Houston currently and people are coming in/out of my building dressed like Eskimos. Cracks me up.

    Tastes like Iguana. When I was stationed in Panama, the street vendors sold chunks of roasted Iguana tail on a stick. My kids called it mystery meat....but, they loved it.

    It is....

    You get really used to it, though, the general FL strangeness, and as a bonus it keeps alot of the Yankees ( but not enough) from moving here, or at least from leaving the coastal areas.

    Every place I've lived has been like that to some extent. There's always regional idiosyncrasies and a desire to keep the interlopers out.

    In the west it's not as clearly defined as the eastern north/south thing. I think that's something a person needs to be born into, and they don't really get it out here. We all pretty much want to keep the Californians out, though.

    It sure is if you're a smallish lizard. Poor little buggers. Not that they belong there anyway, but still. Sucks to be an iguana in South Florida right now.

    Last time I was there the only thing we had to worry about were coconuts falling from trees in the park.

    The cold doesn't kill them. When they get very cold they can no longer hold themselves in the tree. The fall kills them.
