Florida is a warm, southern state with everything from orange trees to a large, central swamp known as The Everglades. As you might imagine, this makes for a variety of interesting creatures both land-loving and aquatic. In fact, Florida is so appealing to animals, species not native to the state have been able to move in and thrive. The perfect examples of this are the Burmese Python and the red-tail boa constrictors. These snakes are not native to North America, but so many were released of escape into the Florida wild that a breeding population was spotted in The Everglades. This is not necessarily a good thing, as many native creatures-raccoons and small mammals in particular-have begun to vanish from that region of the state. Not even a smaller alligator can always withstand an attack from the Burmese Python.

Alligators are used to being at the top of the food chain, and because of this the large reptiles are often nuisances around homes, where people fear attacks on themselves and pets. Particularly dangerous are alligators over 8 feet, during the mating season in May. Florida's suburbs are often surrounded by water, and alligators make good use of the man-made channels and canals around the region. Another problematic reptile is the iguana, which is significantly smaller than the alligator but large enough in its own right.

The warm climate in this state means reptiles and amphibians are plentiful. Florida has four venomous species of snakes, all of which can sneak into a yard at any moment. However, they are relatively rare. They include the Eastern Diamondback, the Pigmy Rattler, the Eastern Coral Snake, and the Cottonmouth, or Water Moccasin. Cottonmouth snakes are drawn to water-something most homes have in Florida. Thankfully, most snakes will move out of a lawn after a day or so. Some of these snakes like to live in the water, adding to the list of semi-aquatic animals that can become problematic. Other water-loving pests include beavers, otters, and muskrats. Nutria, another semi-aquatic rodent, are another example of a non-native species moving in and making itself at home.

One animal people don't think much about when they think of Florida is the armadillo. This little creature is not just a problem for the south central states. Florida has armadillos, too, probably more per area than any other state, because they thrive in FL's sandy soil, and they will cause just as much damage in Florida as any other state. They keep several burrows, and dig up lawns as they search for worms and grubs.

Due to the variety of landscapes in this state, Florida also has some large land predators. The Florida panther, an endangered species, is not usually a nuisance animal. It is rarely spotted. What the panther lacks in pest-ability, the black bear makes up for. The surge of tourists into the state has made black bears bold about raiding garbage cans and invading campgrounds. However, black bear attacks on people are rare.

West Palm Beach Wildlife Tip
West Palm Beach, FL Wildlife News Clip:
Wildlife - How's winter in Florida sound? Seized gators to head south

Even as a kid, Susan The Wildlife Trapper had a soft spot for offbeat underdogs. Cartoons about the fabled fictional mongoose were a childhood passion. And in adulthood, she developed another passion - for a snake-loving sideshow sword-swalThe Wild Animal and Raccoon Expertr, who is now her husband, Travis The Wildlife Trapper. Florida has an abundance of wildlife, and West Palm Beach is no exception.

Little wonder then that when Susan, a Boone County animal control officer, pulled two skinny alligators out of a tank during an animal cruelty investigation last April, she felt she had to do something for the beady-eyed creatures. Although several species of wildlife roam West Palm Beach, only a few, such as raccoons and Eastern Gray Squirrels and rats, are considered pest wildlife.

Next Thursday, that something will take the The Wildlife Trappers and the two now-thriving alligators 1,100 miles south to a Florida alligator refuge park where the creatures will be gradually introduced to the semi-wild life. Florida has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify West Palm Beach snake species and mammals.

The The Wildlife Trappers are volunteering their time and automobile to the effort. And trip expenses are being paid for with donations from visitors to the Boone County Animal Shelter.
