endangered species

A tv special stated there was a problem with cobras that were eating the wildlife; resulting in few sitings of wildlife. Is there still abundance of wildlife to see there?

Do you mean Burmese pythons?? I've never heard anything about cobras but recently read that non native, nonvenomous snakes such as pythons and anacondas are wreaking havoc on the eco system by eating everything in sight.

There are a lot of pythons in the Everglades that are messing with the ecosystems. However, as a tourist, there is still much wildlife to be enjoyed! You will see tons of alligators, exotic bird species, marsh rabbits, deer, and more. Hopefully, that won't ever change!!

As others said, its large constrictors. You more than likely won't see one unless you go looking for them unless you see one on the road. The media has blown this issue up more than it deserves. Feral cats have been wreaking havoc on south floridas small animals for years, but when snakes are involved its a big deal because they are scary snakes.

No, your wildlife observations will not be affected.
