This is the first report of a python on Marco Island officials say, but according to FWC Cpt. Jayson Horadam, they have found three in the last two weeks in the surrounding areas, including Rookery Bay. 'This is just the tip of the iceberg,' Horadam said. An estimated more than 100,000 pythons are spread throughout the area into the Everglades. Greg Kahn/Staff
