We here at A Field Guide To Doomsday have been ever vigilant in our coverage of the sinister serpentine assault from the swamps.
We've warned you! We've begged you! BUT DID YOU LISTEN?!!! DID YOU?!!!!!
Perhaps you should have heeded our warnings...
University Of Florida researchers caught a Burmese python of a record-breaking [for the region] 17ft 7in length and 164.5 lb weight...which also happened to be chock full of a record-breaking 87 eggs.
"There's nothing stopping them, and the native wildlife are in trouble," says Kenneth Krysko of The Florida Museum Of Natural History. "A 17-and-a-half-foot snake could eat anything it wants."
As of now, population estimates range from the thousands to, oh, the hundreds of thousands of ravenous reptiles.
And although it's from 2010, this map is perfect for all your Mutant Future-y, Gamma-World-ly, ophidi-oid-related needs.
GAZE UPON YOUR GRANDCHILDREN'S SCALE-FILLED TOMORROW, FOOLS!!!
