Despite their enormous size, Burmese pythons are almost impossible to find. They're prolific breeders and voracious eaters. This story tells how they have been invading the state of Florida, and the innovative program scientists are trying by using sentinel snakes with implanted tracking devices to find and eliminate these animals from ruining the ecosystem, while also exploring ways to keep the population in check and protect Florida's native animals.
