Burmese Python Upsets Food Chain At Everglades National Park - Daily Science Journal

dailysciencejournal.com [cached]

Initially the rabbits settled in and began breeding and it appeared that they were thriving, as per a University of Florida biologist Robert McCleery.
However, as the temperature rose, the rabbits began disappearing. The study revealed that the pythons were gobbling up the rabbits faster than they could reproduce and even faster than the anticipation of scientists. McCleery mentioned that about 77 percent of the rabbits were eaten by pythons. McCleery was careful not to mention that the results show that pythons are behind all other small-animal declines in the park and he added "We'd like to think we're setting the stage to make it clear that this is a problem."

University of Florida biologist Robert McCleery tells the Today Show about the impact of Burmese Python predation on Marsh Rabbits in the Everglades.

When the heat of summer revved up snake activity, the pythons ate up to a fifth of a study population of marsh rabbits each week, researchers report March 18 in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. That rate of predation over the long term is "not even close to sustainable" for the once-abundant rabbit population, says mammal ecologist and study coauthor Robert McCleery of the University of Florida in Gainesville.
It's the best evidence yet - contrary to what a mammal ecologist might predict - that the pythons really could wipe out populations of a famously fast-breeding mammal, he says. McCleery had been skeptical that pythons by themselves could do so much damage. Marsh rabbits ( Sylvilagus palustris) can produce six litters a year of multiple young, he says, and biologists have long expected that in rich habitats, fast-reproducing little animals rebound faster than predators can gobble them. McCleery and colleagues monitored the fates of 80 marsh rabbits, some introduced into the snakiest locales and some in snake-poor zones. Examining the carcasses revealed mammals as the top predators in python-poor zones. But pythons killed more than two-thirds of the dead rabbits in the high-snake zone. "We're talking about a total switch of predators," McCleery says.
