Snakes, iguanas, and a host of invasive species have overrun Florida–decimating many local indigenous species of animals. How Burmese Pythons, Iguanas, and large lizards became popular pets, before falling out of favor and being abandoned in Florida is explored with Captain Jeffrey Fobb of the Florida Venom Response Unit. We discuss the legal and environmental playing field that has become a slithering mess in the South Eastern United States, on the Antidote with Michael Parker.
Captain Jeffrey Fobb currently works on the B-Shift at the Venom Response Unit. He is a responder to snake bite incidents, recovery of venomous and exotic fauna, Technical Large Animal Rescue, and support of fire suppression and rescue units.
