Pythons in Eastern Carolina? New Report Says Yes

Government data released this week shows Burmese pythons could live as far north as Virginia in the east and San Francisco on the west coast. The Survey believes that recent climate changes have helped the snake adapt to the new environment.

Burmese pythons were first brought to the country as pets, but are now living in the wild. Experts say they eat all types of wildlife, but aren't considered a danger to humans.

The Burmese python is one of the 6 biggest snakes in the world, native to rain forest areas of Southeast Asia. They are often found near water but can also be found in trees.
