Martinique was one of the first islands developed by the Spaniards. The indigenous population of the island was almost completely destroyed by the colonialists, and instead of the rebellious Indians slaves from Africa were brought in. However, the Negroes did not differ perseverance on the plantations and constantly made shoots. The Spaniards found an original way out - they brought cobra to the island, which multiplied in swamps in huge quantities, and attempts to get beyond the fences of civilization became even more dangerous. The snakes have multiplied to such an extent that they have caused inconvenience to the colonialists. However, killing snakes was much more difficult than dissolving. The output was the breeding of mongooses from India, the natural enemies of snakes.
