Shawn Heflick, a biologist with the Conservation Rainforest Trust, holds a Burmese Python that was captured during a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission nonnative snake hunt training session on February 22, 2010 in Miami, Florida. The python was thought to have been effected by the recent cold weather in Florida because it was lethargic and barely moving when hunters found it along a levee in the Everglades. The training session was for hunters that plan to capture reptiles of concern from March 8 to April 17. Some experts believe more than 100,000 non-native Burmese pythons inhabit the Florida Everglades and are damaging the region's endangered wildlife.
