What if part of your schoolwork or job description required a class in catching snakes?
That's what's happening here in Sarasota, Florida.
Experts are teaching law enforcement, wildlife officials and even students how to catch pythons and other snakes.
The pros say when a snake is grabbed by the tail, it will either try to get away or double back.
Reticulated and Burmese pythons are very common in the Everglades and other swampy areas in the state.
Experts say capturing the snakes will limit their reproduction and control the population of the invasive species.
