Largest python on record found in Florida

A 17.5 foot python, the largest one on record in Florida, was captured in the Florida Everglades this week. It  had 87 eggs in it ready to be born. Mostly peoples' discarded pets, the reptiles are not native to Florida, but have flourished there. Scientists originally predicted the freezing winter of 2010 would eradicate the snakes. Obviously, they were wrong. The pythons have eaten most of the fox, bobcats, and opossums in the Everglades. Way to go Exotic Pet Guy...
