So this happened today. When I was a kid the gators were bigger and the snakes were smaller. I’m not kidding. The gators were endangered and therefore protected so they grew fat and happy in my back yard. Now you can eat gator for breakfast if you are so inclined. The plethora of nonindigenous snakes unleashed on South Florida by Hurricane Andrew and irresponsible pet owners hadn’t happened yet. Nature was maintaining the indigenous snake population on her own. Now I guess it is up to the little pre-dinner gators to even the score. (French readers, the Gators are a terrible American football team.) I never thought I would say it but Go gators! Eat the giant snakes!!
