Inside the 2013 Florida Python Challenge

Inside the 2013 Florida Python Challenge

When the Florida Wildlife Commission offered $1500 for the most pythons caught in the Everglades in a month, they had no idea that over 1500 would-be hunters and a cabal of journos would flock to the swamp. From the wilds of south Florida we’ve heard mythic  reports of gun-totin’ rednecks and unscrupulous bounty hunters risking life and limb to help rid the pristine Glades of a biblical pestilence. In the final week of the Challenge, Caty Enders went south to see if any of it was true.

The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott

The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott

In October, Historian David M. Wilson dropped a bomb on exploration buffs: 109 photographs from Captain Robert Falcon Scott's Terra Nova Antarctic expedition, which ended with the death of Scott and four crew members in 1912. The images, taken by Scott and developed by his expedition photographer, Herbert Ponting, have gone largely unseen since Ponting's death in 1935.
