These reptiles are not supposed to be living in Florida. That’s why we have hunters doing their best do catch pythons in the Florida Everglades. One of the largest was just hauled in over the weekend.
A 16 foot long python weighing 165 pounds was removed from the Everglades.
The invasive species is a danger to the food chain. They have been living in Florida for at least 20 years.

He said it’s one of the largest of the non-native species found in the Glades.
They also removed a nest of 40 to 50 eggs. pic.twitter.com/ySKkdbYSkE
