ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Invasive species are attacking the Everglades.

At the Flint RiverQuarium Thursday night people got to see a few of those animals up close.

The Nile Monitor Lizard, black rat, and Burmese Python are among more than 200 non-native plant and animal species living in the Everglades.

Former RiverQuarium CEO Doug Noble gave a presentation on a new temporary exhibit called Alien Attack: Target Everglades.

He helped produce the exhibit for the Florida Museum of Natural History. The problem is largely attributed to the introduction of exotic plants and animals by humans.

Alien Attack is now on display at the RiverQuarium.
