Man-eating Super Snake

Image 1 / 9

South Florida is under siege from a new invasive species. This time, they're man-eaters: African Rock Pythons. These lethal giant constrictors are one of nature's most aggressive snakes. As exotic pets or in the wild, they have attacked and killed humans and with them now on the loose in Florida, people, native animals, and the ecosystem aren't safe. Currently confined to an area west of Miami, if these predators make it to the everglades and interbreed with another invasive behemoth - Burmese Pythons - it could give birth to a terrifying hybrid man-eating super snake! This programme takes a look at how these deadly creatures came to live in this region, gets opinions from snake experts and biologists and even takes a look at how deadly these creatures can really be.
