Florida snake hunters made a behemoth, record-breaking catch in the Everglades on Friday.
A 17-foot Burmese python.
Python hunter Jason Leon set a record, according to the South Florida Water Management District, when he caught the female python around 2:45 a.m. at the Big Cypress National Preserve.
Never miss a local story.
The snake measured 17 feet, 1 inch long and weighed a whopping 132 pounds, according to officials.
Back in February, Davie police officers found an 11-foot reticulated python in the engine of a person’s vehicle.
This is the largest python ever caught under the state’s Python Elimination Program, which started earlier this year.
The hunters received $375 for the catch.
