That is a big snake.
Especially for a non native species.
These Burmese Pythons have no natural predators in Florida. Pictures have even surfaced of them eating alligators, though the authenticity of them is
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission said Jason Leon, of Hialeah, found the 18-foot, 8-inch beast while riding in a rural area in
southeast Miami-Dade County on May 11. About 3 feet of the snake was spotted sticking out of some roadside brush.
Unfortunately they killed the snake, but I guess what else are they going to do with them? These are large dangerous snakes. Especially for the very
young. I wonder how long before someone's child is eaten or killed by one? I think it is more of a matter of when, rather than if.
Florida sponsored a python hunt earlier this year, that had less than positive results. Something like 30 snakes were caught.
