The creatures get. 4-6 ft long and 40 lbs. , only the Komodo dragon is larger in size. They eat carrion, including humans.
They have venom and sharp teeth and claws. Their hide is used to make some leather goods....they’ll eat your little dog Toto too.....with the python and now this varanus, poor Florida Man doesn’t stand a chance.
I guess that eliminates the need for shovel ready jobs with all of those unclaimed corpses at the Miami-Dade morgue.
