Scientific Confirmation!

Gotta love a news story (SF Chronicle) that contains a line like this:
As for other potential prey, human beings - like rodents, beavers and deer - are mammals, government scientists confirmed.
Now there's a reporter who doesn't skimp on fact-checking.
And note the plural: he didn't just take the first government scientist's word for it! (I wonder how many he called before he was satisfied?)

The natural enemies of the python are lions, tigers and other large cats. There are few free-roaming African lions and tigers between Florida and San Francisco, the geological survey said.

"A large alligator will eat a small python," Rodda said. "But we are not recommending you import alligators into California. That would not be a good idea."
