On Saturday January 12, 2013, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission launched the 2013 Python Challenge.

Burmese pythons have been threatening Florida’s ecosystem for years, so the state is turning to the public for help in the form of a hunting contest to help control the population.

Hunters came from all over to help the ecosystem and win some prize money. The challenge lasts until midnight on February 10.
