Burmese pythons are non-native in the Florida Everglades. However, as they
grow larger, pet owners release them into the wild because they can no longer
care for them. When this happens, the pythons begin competing with other
snakes for food.

The Eastern Indigo snake is native to the Everglades. With the introduction of
pythons, will the Eastern Indigo population increase (A), stay the same (B), or
decrease (C)?

Explain your reasoning. How did you decide and why?
