Bradenton FL Wildlife Information

Florida Wildlife Commission: 888-404-3922

Florida Game WardenIf you have any questions about the wildlife of Bradenton, you can contact the Florida Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Florida Fish & Wildlife Agency. Florida game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Bradenton wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Bradenton like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as Wildlife Removal Bradenton at 941-209-1474.

I also have listed several sources for free Bradenton wildlife help. One example, if you've found an injured animal or lost baby bird or other baby animal is the Bradenton Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 941-778-6324 Or just read below for more info about the wild animals of Bradenton.

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.

Bradenton Wildlife Tip
What To Do If A Rodent Died In Your Ceiling - If you discover that a rodent has died in your ceiling, there is no need to burden yourself with worry. It is a common occurrence and happens to many homeowners. A dead rodent trapped inside your home will produce a foul odor, so there is no way that a dead rodent will remain in your house without you finding out about it. You might ask yourself, 'how did a rodent end up in my ceiling?' Rodents are very agile and adept animals. They can fit easily through tiny crevices.

So any small opening in your wall or ceiling is enough for them to get through. However, a rodent can also just as easily get stuck, and can get electrocuted because they chew wires. You can easily get rid of a dead rodent, but make sure to wear gloves and a face mask to protect yourself from the odor and bacteria. If you are uncomfortable with removing the dead rodent on your own, you can call a professional to do it for you. You can also have a professional inspect to house to find holes and crevices that are difficult to find and close them off with the right material. If a rodent has entered your house once that means there is a chance it will happen again.
Bradenton, FL Wildlife News Clip:
Wildlife - Exotic snakes are becoming a problem in Florida

But Kenneth Krysko, a herpetologist at the Florida Museum of Natural History, is sure the total is "in the tens of thousands." And most are candidates for illegal releases. Florida has an abundance of wildlife, and Bradenton is no exception.

"They're cute when people buy them, but one can grow to 8 feet in a year -- too big for its' 10-gallon aquarium," Krysko said. Although several species of wildlife roam Bradenton, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels, are considered pest wildlife.

Breeding populations of pythons in Central Florida have the potential to deliver a serious impact on the native wildlife, state experts said. Among the animals most vulnerable are wading birds, such as herons and the wood ibis, and small mammals like rabbits, raccoons and mice. They could upset the eco-system because they compete with native large reptiles -- like alligators -- for the same food supply. Remember to treat the wild animals of Bradenton, Florida, with respect and care.

Pythons can live for 25 years, grow to a length of 20 feet and weigh more than 200 pounds. The snakes come through the Port of Miami by the tens of thousands a year in the wholesale reptile trade. The python has become a trendy pet, but one that loses its "cuteness" when it grows to 8 feet. That, wildlife officials said, is when thoughtless owners take them out in the woods and swamps and dump them.
