In a June, 2009 photo taken from video, a Burmese python is seen in the snake pit at the Savannah River Ecology Lab in South Carolina where scientists are collecting pythons for study. Scientists and ecologists will insert micro data loggers into each snake. The data loggers record the internal temperature of the python every hour. After a year, they will remove the chips and download the information into a computer to discover how the snakes thermoregulate in a cooler climate. (AP Photo/Alysia Patterson)
