Big Difference

One big difference between growing up in West Texas and growing up in Far North Queensland, Australia is snakes. Or rather the size of the snakes. Sure we have lost a lot of dogs to rattlesnakes in my extended family. But we never watched the family dog get eaten by a 110lb python that had been stalking the dog for days. But that could all change.

As climate change warms the nation, giant Burmese pythons could colonize one-third of the USA, from San Francisco across the Southwest, Texas and the South and up north along the Virginia coast, according to U.S. Geological Survey maps released Wednesday.

Just your cheery thought for the day. Who wants to help me turn this into a Sci-fi Channel Saturday night movie?
