Florida’s most destructive invasive species? Feral cats


When you think about the most potentially damaging invasive species faced by wildlife managers in Florida, Burmese pythons, monitor lizards and Giant African land snails may come to mind. But Florida Fish and Wildlife spokesman Gary Morse notes the most destructive invader by far is feral cats. “The nature of cats is to hunt,” Morse said. “That’s what they do, even when they’re not hungry.” Orlando Sentinel.
