Anaconda Owners Tangle With Florida Officials
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Governor Ron DeSantis appeared in South Florida this week to tout efforts to rid the Everglades of damaging pythons.

Owners and dealers of anacondas asked a Leon County circuit judge last week to issue a preliminary injunction against a new state rule that largely bans anacondas in Florida. The state targeted anacondas, which are native to South America, as part of a move to control invasive species that can harm habitats in Florida.
