Python bivittatus, 03 August 2017

Python bivittatus, the Burmese python;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (03 August 2017).

A young Burmese python crossing a lonely road in south Florida. This non-native species has proven to be catastrophic to our native wildlife in south Florida. As adults, they have considerable appetites and very few natural predators in south Florida. An impressive and very problematic species.
