Good article, until the last paragraph:

"Since pythons are an exotic species, they are a problem in the Everglades. Unchecked, they could eventually damage its delicate ecosystem. But many experts say with the limited information they now have, they can only guess how quickly that might be. "

This is just as "unscientific" as over-estimating the number of pythons in the Everglades. It's the old "they have no natural enemies and will take over the world if humans don't intervene" silliness. And it sort of contradicts the rest of the article. If these ecosystem destroying monsters have been unchecked for 20 years, then the number of pythons would be bigger, wouldn't it??
