John, there has been an ongoing crash of amphibian and reptile populations going on since the late 1970's here in FL. Some species here like getulus Kingsnakes went from being unbelievably common to none in about 5 years. Paynes Prairie, a once famous Kingsnake habitat, not a single King as been seen in over 30 years. Why or how they dissapeared in such a short time is anybodies guess but they are gone!! This is NOT unique to the USA as I've just read a paper about how several snakes in Europe have dissapeared as well from seemingly excellent habitat for NO apparent reason...Soon we'll have an entire OCEAN devoid of life but we're directly linked to that one. I CAN'T BELIEVE THE PAUCITY OF NEW'S REPORTS THESE DAYS OF THE GREATEST ENVIROMENTAL DISASTER EVER WITNESSED. The Python's here got more press reports for longer periods of time...
