Python Hunters is the show that makes you want to watch and turn your head away all at the same time. We love to be scared a bit and this show can be a little scary but very exciting. Taking place in the Florida Everglades, follow the escapades of three snake experts as they traipse through the swamps in search of monster snakes. Sometimes they find snakes and sometimes they come across other non-indigenous species. Watch the great monitor chase and bear witness to some of the largest snakes that you never wanted to know were actually out there. Greg Graziani, Michael Cole and Shawn Heflick come across some of the largest specimens of snakes in the United State and you are part of the hunt as it happens. With the pet trade causing the breeding of large snakes to be a high profit industry, many of these large pythons have found their way into the United States. The swamps of Florida have proven to be a very fertile breeding land for the pythons who have either escaped or been released by owners who no longer wanted the snakes as pets. The result: Raccoon populations have declined and South Floridians are seeing a dramatic increase in the sighting of these large snakes. Watch the guys as they prove that the stories are not myth but based on truth. Very large snakes really are out there and each week, on the Nat Geo channel "Python Hunters" will take you into the Everglades of South Florida so that you can see these snakes first hand. Not only do the snakes exist, but the issue has the state of Florida so worried that python hunts are now being planned to try to get the problem under control. "Python Hunters" find snakes and all sorts of dangerous wildlife in their adventures. Watch as they come face to face with alligators and other wildlife of the Everglades, never knowing what is just around the next corner. Tune-in and find out what everyone is talking about.
