Another Firenado Caught on Film

firenado2Out of Santa Barbara County, California, another firenado was recently caught on film. This could be my ‘favorite’ natural weather phenomenon… they are just so cool looking.

Just Another Florida Critter – You Thought the Jurassic Gator was Long?

This was posted on Facebook, the poster indicates it was taken just outside the City of Fort Myers on the way to Lehich Acres… that’s just down the street. I can’t see much detail, but at that length, it must be an invasive Burmese Python.

 

gatesville-courthouse-snakeI posted the snake in the courtroom on my other blog this morning- makes that little fella look like a walk in the park. And a guy in South Carolina had a couple snakes dangling out of his attic, but they probably didn’t match this Burmese if they were lined up end to end!

And remember that Massive Gator that was filed walking along a Florida Golf Course, keep in mind that these Burmese Pythons HUNT alligators! It’s like we’re surrounded by dinosaurs down here!

It made news for obvious reasons, but it’s really not uncommon down here.

UPDATE: Apparently- it’s a fake. Which is kind of silly, because we actually do get snakes like that down here… http://www.nbc-2.com/story/27389139/7-foot-snake-slithers-through-naples-park#.V2gEKrgrLcc
