Invasion Of The Giant Pythons Florida's Everglades National Park is one of the last great wildlife refuges in the United States, home to numerous unique and endangered animals and plants, as well as untold numbers of iconic alligators. However, the park has also become a dumping ground for a variety of non-native species, including what may be as many as tens of thousands of Burmese pythons. Some were intentionally released by pet owners no longer able to cope with their giant snakes, others were unintentionally set free when hurricanes hit Florida's animal warehouses. The predatory snakes have moved into their new home with a vengeance, thriving in the protected wilderness the park offers, disrupting its delicate ecosystem in the process. Invasion of the Giant Pythons follows scientists and snake hunters as they study the problem and try to find solutions to the growing crisis.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
