Burmese pythons are established in South Florida. The FWC, along with several other state and federal agencies, is trying to control this nonnative snake. You can help FWC and other agencies manage these species by reporting sightings of Burmese pythons. This information helps us assess the distribution and abundance of nonnative species in Florida, detect the arrival of new exotic species, or identify range expansions by exotics that are already here.
Reporting by phone
You can call the FWC’s Exotic Species Hotline at 888-IVE-GOT1 (888- 483-4681) and report a Burmese python. The hotline is answered part-time by a live operator and has a voicemail system that will prompt you for information about your sighting and your contact information if the operator is unable to answer the call.

Who was Barron Collier?
Read about the amazing man who bought over 1 million acres of South Florida land and had a county named after him.
Besides completing the Tamiami Trail across the swamp and developing the Everglades City, he also owned a group of resort hotels which attracted the rich and famous to Useppa, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Boca Grande, Lakeland, Bradenton, Punta Gorda, Sarasota, and the most renown one, the Rod & Gun Club. But that’s not all -- he operated a telephone service, published newspapers, and provided transportation on ships and buses.
And, he was a big player during the Roaring Twenties in New York City where he hobnobbed with important people and reduced traffic accidents with his “Aunty J. Walker” campaign. He had grown up in Memphis and made his fortune in streetcar advertising which he used to promote charitable causes such as the Boy Scouts.
A new book The Story of Barron Collier by local historian Marya Repko summarizes it all for younger readers (and older ones who like a quick synopsis) just in time for holiday gift-giving. It has a plethora of historic photos and suggestions for Further Reading. To order online, see www.ecity-publishing.com or for more information, call the author at (239) 695-2905.
