The "Python Challenge" is a four week event where people can help remove Burmese Pythons from the Florida Everglades.
Contestants compete over a four week period to see who can capture the most pythons from the wild, because these snakes are not native to the area, and are having a severe impact on the ecosystem of the Everglades, according to biologists.
