They live in rain forests and rarely harm humans. They are rare and a little endangered because humans want to keep them as pets and want their skin. The Burmese python is an invasive species. People brought them to America to keep as pets. But after the pythons got too big, people freed it in the Everglades National Park. The pythons ate the endangered species in there. Thats why t’hey are called an invasive species.
