This happened near Naples in SW Florida. No wonder the deer hunting sucks here.


The snake is regurgitating the deer. That's his mouth stretched out not an incision.  affraid

A normal, intelligent, sane individual has no business going where pythons hang out. For the most part the terrain is impassable. Thick sawgrass (called SAWgrass because it cuts like a saw), brush, or water with floating islands of vegetation that tremble when you walk on them .. until you fall through.

We also have saw palmettos that cut deeper than the sawgrass.

 We should kidnap you from that swamp and bring you to some real country with mountains and stuff. You remember mountains right?

I'm nowhere near either one. 55 miles one way and 100 the other. I'm only 35-40 miles from a national forest though. In fact, there are 21 public hunting areas within a 35 mile radius of me.

The highest point in peninsular Florida is Sugarloaf Mountain about 20 miles from me. It is 312 ft. high.   Rolling Eyes

I think I can get by with Diamox if I acclimate slowly and then I won't have to carry an oxygen bottle.
