What is your comfort level around snakes? What about giant snakes weighing over two hundred pounds with lengths reaching over twenty feet? What if this species invaded your backyard, your living area, your habitat? This is the challenge for the natural habitat in southern Florida with a pit of Burmese pythons snaking about. Native wildlife such as wading birds, bobcats, white-tailed deer, and even alligators are falling prey to this voracious predator. Although native to Asia, pythons are now common in areas such as the Everglades since they have been introduced as escaped or presumably released pets. Dr. Mike Dorcas the Nancy and Erwin Maddrey Professor in the Department of Biology at Davidson College, Davidson, NC will talk more about his extensive research on what is happening to the ecosystem since this species has invaded our country. Be prepared! He will be bringing and we will be hosting an extra-large, extra special guest.
Come join us and experience something extra special, Thursday, November 5th in the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road.) at 7:15 PM. Refreshments and fellowship from 6:45 PM. Our guest will have already eaten. Although we offer disposable cups, if you think of it beforehand, please consider bringing your own cup or mug to ease the burden on the environment. Ice will be provided. Birds and Beans Bird Friendly coffee will be available too!
