Florida Python 2

Florida Python 2

A snake measuring more than 17 feet and bagged last week is the longest ever caught in Florida's Python Elimination Program.

- South Florida Water tweeted this Monday that python hunter Jason Leon set a record for the SFWMD Python Elimination Program when he brought a 17-foot-1-inch Burmese Python to the District's Homestead Field Station.

A Florida python hunter snagged a record-breaking snake last Friday.

The snakes entered the Everglades in the 1980s, the Miami Herald reports.

Its native habitat ranges from India to lower China, throughout the Malay Peninsula and on some islands in the East Indies, where it typically lives near water.

In April, Miami-Dade county launched a python elimination program that pays hunters $8.10 an hour.

Man wanted for burglarizing two of R. Kelly's homes
The police later got a search warrant for Walker's home and ended up recovering some of Kelly's missing items. Reports are saying that someone burglarized his Atlanta homes while he's been away on tour.

"That snake could pretty much kill any full-grown man", Leon told NBC6. 'There's no natural predators too'.

He grabbed the snake and quickly shot her in the head, killing her instantly. It then pays an extra $50 for a 4-foot snake and $25 for each additional foot beyond that. It's unclear whether the two had mated.

According to the Everglades National Park Service, snakes from around the world have been turning up in and around Florida's Everglades national park. Though an avid python catcher, he doesn't advocate tackling large ones alone.

"If you see a snake this big, I don't think you should jump on it, at least if you don't have somebody else with you", he warned.

Leon still holds the 2013 state record for a python he captured that was 18 feet, 8 inches, according to SFWMD. WSVN reported the 16 foot, 11 inch python on November 2.
