Meet Brittany Borges: The Blonde Snake Hunter on Discovery's 'Guardians of the Glades'

By

Fighting large pythons is a typical day for Florida native Brittany Borges. The Guardians of the Glades star is featured on the new Discovery series, which follows Dusty "The Wildman" Crum and his team as they hunt down Burmese pythons in an attempt to save the Florida Everglades.  

The snake hunters battle the treacherous swamps as they fight the enormous snakes whose overpopulation threaten other bird and mammal species. According to Discovery Channel’s press release for the series, the new predator has already decimated more than 90 percent of certain species. “For me, it is more than just hunting pythons. I grew up here. This is my home," Guardian of the Glades' Brittany said in a clip for the six-episode series.
