Presenter: Larry Perez

Snake-eating alligators and alligator-eating snakes might seem like a science fiction story-line, but those battles are playing out in Everglades National Park, where the invasion of non-native pythons threatens to upend a rich and diverse ecosystem that includes the largest tract of wilderness east of the Rockies. Larry Perez skillfully explores this astonishing assault — the repercussions already tallied and those lying in wait — in a book that reads almost like fiction but which, sadly, is only too factual.

Larry Perez, a lifelong resident of Miami, is a graduate of Florida International University. He has been an interpreter and park ranger for Miami-Dade County Parks, and the National Park Service while achieving numerous professional awards. Larry is both a writer and producer, authoring Words on the Wilderness: A History of Place Names in South Florida National Parks, and Journal of Florida’s Watchable Wildlife: Reptiles and Amphibians.
