Florida is home to more than just crocodiles

Florida is home to hundreds if not thousands of invasive species.

Oh My God!

There’s Nile crocodiles in Florida.

Given the outrage and disbelief over this week’s finding of Nile Crocs hanging out in the Sunshine State, one would think they were the first invasive or nonindigenous animals found there.

Unfortunately, this is hardly the case.

Florida is home to hundreds if not thousands of invasive species. 

Burmese pythons, nutria, capabara, monkeys, cats, boar, iguana, and a host of other animal, fish, mollusk, insect, and plant species can be found there…

Slowly destroying the environment and costing taxpayers millions of dollars in damage.

But Florida’s not the only state inundated.

Most states have some sort of invasive problem and with the climate and weather patterns changing things only look to get worse.

What kind of invasives have you seen afield?

Let us know!
