    The State has no plan to eradicate them. This is a plan to charge fees and regulate the problem. If they wanted to eliminate the snakes, they should open the season and ask for the public’s help. Read my comments over at http://www.coastalflorida.blogspot.com

    Taste like chicken? probably more like iguana


    …went trolling the Internet this morning, and found a pretty amusing discussion thread on “How to cook Burmese python” over at Chowhound. A commenter named Veggo wrote: “I suggest a 1-day marinade with soy sauce, orange juice concentrate, scallions, ginger, and honey. Bake it with the marinade and baste occasionally. Florida is overrun with them; we need to make them delicious.”

    Can anyone say “Python” Tacos?

    Cook down some onion, Poblano, garlic, add some tomatillo sauce, chipotle sauce, cayenne pepper sauce, cumin, cilantro & cook the meat in that… serve in corn tortillas with your fav salsa & fresh lettuce, cilantro & minced onion & EAT IT UP FLORIDA!!!
