        Over 80 Snakes Caught! Meet the Winners of the 2020 Python Bowl

        By: Discovery

        Guardians of the Glades Star Mike “Python Cowboy” Kimmel is the 2020 Python Bowl Champion!

        In 1992, almost 1,000 Burmese pythons escaped into the Florida Everglades. Today, their population has exploded to over 300,000. This invasive species is not only decimating the native wildlife populations in the Everglades, but they threaten the ecosystem of the entire Southeastern region of the United States.

        More than 750 people from 20 states registered to participate in the 10-day competition. All who registered were required to pass a mandatory online training. The competitors were split into 3 categories: Pros, Rookies, and Active Service Members or Veterans.

        Guardians of the Glades star Mike “Python Cowboy” Kimmel was crowned the 2020 Python Bowl champion after he removed eight invasive pythons from the wild! Former champion, Dusty “Wildman” Crum was unable to repeat, but he did earn a second-place prize in the heaviest python category.
