First off I'm from TX so I won't presume to know the big snake market in FL.
But I have to say all this talk about people releasing burms sounds like crap to me.
All things being equal in TX the bigger the snake the bigger the price tag. Especially if you have a snake that is getting some real size(over 14 feet).
Even a normal Burm with no RI that is 14 foot or bigger that is a $300.00 snake, MINIMUM. Why would anyone let an animal go that is worth more now than when they bought it? They would'nt.
So why has'nt anyone(USARK) pointed out this little tidbit of information. A wild nasty Nile Monitor, maybe. But a healthy well establshed adult Burm? I don't know about FL but n TX there is still a market for those.
My favorite is " when they get 20 feet they can't take care of them and they have to let them go."
FLORIDA MEDIA AND WILDLIFE My name is Danny Conner and I will give you $1,000.00 CASH for every 20 foot healthy burm you find.D.C.
