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

"Every one [of the rabbits] we are saying was eaten by a python, we found inside a python," said lead study author Robert A. McCleery, a researcher at the University of Florida. "It wasn't like, 'I wonder what ate this.' You are looking for your rabbit and you find a python. The radio collar was transmitting from inside the python."
While some species may benefit in the short term from a reduction of small mammals, biologists say that as the snakes proliferate and continue to prey on unsuspecting animals, ecological balance will likely suffer.
"There is a serious ecological problem in Everglades National Park that appears to be spreading," McCleery said.

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.

"When we kept looking at the data, what we found was that you really couldn't breed enough woodrats to make it a viable strategy for population recovery," Robert McCleery, a wildlife ecologist at the University of Florida, said in a statement.

When University of Florida researcher Robert McCleery and graduate student Jason Schmidt began looking at why the endangered marsh rabbit's habitat was disappearing in the Florida Keys, they expected the blame to be placed on development.
