I so wish that all skinning would be made illegal everywhere now! Skins, furs, disrespectful to LIFE and the Great Intelligence and Spirit!

I cannot see this becoming a popular petition because most people are repelled by these dangerous reptiles.In the case of the Burmese python Florida is already trying to eradicate them in the Florida Glades due to their devastating impact on wildlife.Their appearance is due to the stupid actions of pet owners releasing them into the wild.These reptiles do not have any predators to control them so any effort to do so is welcome.

Send them into the Everglades. They'll find plenty of pythons there is get their skins.

So, here goes another species that will become extinct, because of human stupidity and greed.

Most snakes here tend to get killed on sight unless it is a very big one and it is considered a media news item and some one has a brief moment of fame showing it off.
