You'd be surprised how many people get pets and don't read up on the care of those animals. They remain completely ignorant. It baffles me.

Are these people stupid or what. There are areas of Florida where Burmese pythons are a problem (breeding indiscriminately and threatening indigenous wildlife). Apparently, people who got tired of their "pet" pythons let them loose in the vegetation where the pythons, having no natural enemies, bred out of control.
