Predictions of 1,000's of captures to only a few dozen were made by wildlife experts and politicians on the announcement of the great snake hunt. 800 would-be snake hunters showed up on the 1st day of the hunt and 18 snakes were reported caught. After that, things slowed down a lot.
The final result, at the close of the one month hunt, was 68 Burmese pythons captured, a little more than two a day.
