Police in the US are trying to rescue a man who mistakenly drove into a giant Burmese python in the Florida Everglades.

The huge reptile was napping with its tunnel-sized mouth open when the man, a hunter from Gamesville, Georgia, inadvertently drove his truck into the viper.

He is taking part in the Python Challenge, a month-long open hunting season sponsored by the state of Florida to eradicate Burmese pythons, which are invading the Everglades. The wetlands provide a perfect environment for the snakes, which are growing both in number and size. Many were originally exotic pets released by their owners into the wild.

The hunter called emergency services from inside of the snake. “He sounds OK, a little light-headed on account of the critter having gas,” said officer LeRoy Lebeaux of the Everglades Law Enforcement Unit.

Police are hopeful that they can reach the man with a tow truck.

  1. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  3. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed some nice practices and we are looking to exchange methods with other folks, why not shoot me an email if interested.

  23. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
