  1. In New Zealand, snakes of any kind are illegal.
    Looks like they learned a lesson from Australia’s imported rabbit problem.

    …if one were to remove the things then the space would no longer exist.
    But where would we put them –?

  2. Someone told me that on Guam island non-native snakes destroyed the whole population of native birds. People tried to bring mongooses to eat the snakes. But mongooses chose to eat the bird’s eggs instead of the snakes.

  3. Indeed, and because of that imbalance, what with insects no longer being eaten by birds on Guam, spiders have filled that niche and grown to enormous sizes. (No need to post pictures about that fact, by the way.)
