Instead of the rattlesnake usually depicted on the well-known Gadsen “don’t tread on me flag”, we used a still image of an alligator busting out of a burmese python (from an 2013 internet video) with the words "Don’t Tread on Me" written on it. The Burmese Python is an aggressive, non-native species that has been establishing itself in the Everglades.
