Pythons were able to find their way back in up to 95-300 days.


No matter where you move them, the giant Burmese Pythons that infest Florida will find their way home.

Scientists found the snakes can get back home even when they're taken up to 20 miles away from their original capture locations in Everglades National Park.

In their research, they took several snakes 13 to 20 miles away and released them. They found it took between 95 and 300 days, but the snakes eventually ended up within three miles of where they were caught.

Scientists say the snakes homing ability was unknown and they don't know how they do it.
