Role in the film Edit
The Mega Pythons were released into the Florida Everglades by a group of animal activists consisting of Nikki Riley, Gia, and Ben after they broke into a house to steal them. Releasing the pythons into the wild caused them to grow to an unnatural size and threaten the ecosystem. The pythons kill over 72 alligators in a matter of days. A park ranger named Terry O'Hara issues permits to local hunters to exterminate the pythons. However, the pythons later kill the hunters along with Terry's fiancé Justin.
Several months later in the Everglades, an all-out war begins between the pythons and the mutated alligators dubbed "Gatoroids" that were created by Terry to avenge Justin's death.
