Everglades Food Chain
Burmese Python (consumer)
Sun (primary source)
If you take an organism out of the food chain the food chain will be corrupted. For example, if we kill all the Burmese pythons in the Everglades there will be an increase in alligators, and grasshoppers plus a decrease in fish and grass. This is because the predator of an alligator is a Burmese python so without the Burmese python there is nothing to keep the population of alligators in check. There is an increase of grasshoppers because with a large amount of alligators there is a larger need for fish to feed all the alligators.This relates to the grasshopper because with the alligators eating the fish there are less fish to eat the grasshoppers. This also leads to a decrease of grass because the large number of grasshoppers eat all the grass. Nothing happens to the sun because it is a inexhaustible source of energy which means it will never run out (except when in over a billion years from now when it will explode). Out of all this information you can conclude that it is best to leave the environment alone so we don't damage the food chain.
The Burmese python is an invasive species that can grow to be up to be 20 feet long which is long enough to be able to eat a full grown alligator. An invasive species is a species that adapts to conditions quickly and they grow larger than they would in their normal enviroment.
